De Warande, behind the screens

de Warande

Discover the renewed Warande building in its full spatial glory during a visit behind the scenes.

De Warande in Turnhout offers a wide range of concerts, dance, theatre, family and cabaret shows and exhibitions. With the theatre and the Kuub, it aims for innovative and international productions and, more than ever, focuses on young talent. During a guided tour you will learn about the history of de Warande and about everything that happens behind the scenes to help organize a concert or theatre performance. 

If you are more interested in the architecture of the building, that is not a problem. The tour can be more focused on this instead. More attention can also be paid to the theatre halls, the rehearsal rooms, the guest rooms, the performers' quarters...

On average, the visit takes two hours.
