The next edition of De Betovering festival will be held between the 16th and 24th of October 2020. 

The programme and tickets will be available online as of September.


Ticket sales en reservations

Tickets for performances or workshops can be bought or booked at the location where they’re held. See the programme to check you location. Performances and workshops need to be booked separately. Book on time! The number of places is often limited, especially for the workshops. When you book, clearly state the date and time of the workshop of performance you want to attend. There’s no need to book for the festival centres, just walk in!


Have you booked but are you unable to attend? Call and cancel. That allows people on the waiting list to take your place. 

At the festival centres, you can pay for your extra activities, food and drinks using ‘groentjes’. You can buy these festival coins at the centres.

Ooievaarspas holders get 50% off all performances and workshops.


Non-Dutch-speaking or hearing-impaired?

Check out our No Dutch Required programme. This offers performances that are visually entertaining and that are not so dependent on spoken word, like dance or circus.


Sold out

When a performance or workshop is sold out, we update this information online as soon as we can. The exact ticket sales are always available at the location’s ticket desk.


Waiting lists

Is your favourite performance of workshop sold out? Ask the ticket desk at the location to place you on the waiting list. You can also take a gamble and go the location, in the hope that someone has forgotten to phone and cancel. 


Important to know

  • Keep a close eye on the age limits. We cannot admit children that are too young.
  • Children attend a show accompanied by an adult.
  • The attendant must also purchase an entrance ticket.
  • Most workshops are only for children. Parents do not have to buy a ticket unless otherwise stated.

Playfully discover the rules of theatre

Have a look at the 'Welkom in het theater' video by Kunstgebouw together, or for the little ones, see 'Theater kijken, zo doe je dat' by youth theatre organisation Het Laagland. This is a playful way of getting to know the behavioural codes of the theatre. 



If you’re planning a visit to one of the festival centres with a group of 5 or more children, we request that you let us know via We can advise you as to when we can best accommodate your group.
