During your visit
- Reduced theatre capacity
The current maximum capacity for theatre performances is 200 spectators. So the number of seats in the theatre is limited. We leave an empty seat between each bubble. The current maximum capacity for theatre performances is still 200 spectators. However, organizers can apply for an exception at the Flemish events desk. Toneelhuis submitted a file for the Bourla Theatre describing how safety can be guaranteed. Jan Jambon and Mayor Bart De Wever have given Toneelhuis their approval: from now on we may receive 575 spectators in a safe and coronaproof manner. Nevertheless, for the time being we are voluntarily limiting ourselves to only selling tickets for the second balcony, in other words for a maximum of 335 spectators. We leave one seat free between each bubble in the auditorium.
We use different entrances and exits in the Bourla in order to guarantee social distancing. Your route is indicated by a number on your ticket. After the show, you take the same route to exit the building. For performances that take place on location, there are other entrance modes.
- Adjustment of numbering in the Bourla
We want to avoid having to cross other spectators in the same row. Your tickets do show a zone (ground floor or balcony) and a row number, but no seat number. When you arrive at the venue, we ask that you simply continue in your row until the end of the row and leave one seat between your bubble and the next bubble in your row. Our attendants will show you around!
- Masks and hand hygiene
Wearing a mask in the theatre is obligatory, including during the performance. When you enter, please disinfect your hands.
During all shows, the theatre is continually ventilated with fresh air.
- The performances start promptly. Doors open a half hour before the show starts. Come on time and follow the route indicated on your ticket.
- Our ushers will show you where to go in the theatre and the auditorium. After the performance, please remain seated until they guide you out of the building.
- The cloakroom is closed; you may take your coat with you into the auditorium.
