What happens to your purchased tickets?

Do you have tickets for one or more performances in the period March to June 2020? First of all, we would like to thank you for your patience and understanding of the recent times.

In consultation with artists, impresariats and producers, we are working hard to move as many performances as possible to another date.

Your tickets remain valid!
We are in line with the national agreement Save your ticket, enjoy later. This means that your purchased tickets (including any additional theater dinners or arrangements) will in any case remain valid. If moving the performance is not an option, there is of course compensation in the form of a voucher or money back.

You will receive a voucher worth the purchase amount of your tickets (and theaterdinner / drinks arrangement purchased). The voucher is valid for the purchase of future tickets, theater dinners and packages in the Parktheater. In this way you have the prospect of something beautiful and you help us absorb the economic blow and prepare us for the future.

The voucher is valid for two years and can be used online, by telephone and at the box office to purchase tickets in the Parktheater. If you do not use the voucher within the validity period, you can still receive a refund.

Money back
If you do not want to accept the voucher, it is of course still possible to have the amount refunded on your bank account. 

Our visitors regularly ask us whether "something" can be done to support the theaters. The most important thing is of course that when our doors open, you will visit our theater again. Would you like to provide extra support? Then convert the amount (or a part) into a donation. Your donation will reach the artists and the Parktheater via a distribution key. We thank you in advance for your support. 

We haven't forgotten you
We haven't forgotten you
Maybe haven't heard from us in a while? And are you still waiting for information about your cancellation and the handling of the tickets?

We would like to catch up on what we have been up to lately and what it is like at the moment.

In the beginning of the lockdown period, mid-March, we hoped that the closure would be short. In good spirits, we moved performances to the months of May to June. When it turned out later that we were not allowed to open in these months, we started looking for replacement data again. However, we had already fully programmed the new theater season, so there was little room for the moves. The artists also had to investigate whether they would be able to pick up their performance again after the summer.

Currently, artists are looking if then can make and play their next season's performances with current financial and social constraints. Or that they will postpone or cancel their performance for a year. So there will be a lot of programming going on in the coming weeks. This may free up space for performances that we have not yet been able to reschedule.

In the meantime, we are looking for possibilities of a new and safe theater if more than 100 visitors are allowed at any time. We also think about how our visitors can move through the building in a safe way and how our employees can do their work in a safe way, before and behind the scenes.

We would like to give you clarity about the movements as soon as possible. We have not forgotten you! Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience.

Save your ticket, enjoy later

April 9, 2020 - Dutch theaters, including Parktheater Eindhoven, concert halls, music venues, event and sports organizers, museums and festivals jointly ask visitors to keep their tickets and thus support the cultural sector. The sector has jointly developed an arrangement, with the support of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and in accordance with ACM rules.

The coronavirus affects us all, including the cultural sector and sport. Many performances, festivals, competitions and concerts are forced to be moved or canceled; museums and monuments close their doors. The various industry associations are joining forces and calling on their visitors to keep their ticket until the doors open again: save your ticket, enjoy later.

The spirit of theater
The spirit of theater
Despite the fact that we will be closed for a certain period of time, this light will continue to burn on the stage of the Hertog Jan Zaal. A ghostlight serves as an orientation light in the dark and as a spotlight for the spirit of our theater. According to the myth, the mind thinks through such a light that a performance is in progress and the mind remains calm. An awakened mind can bring misfortune during performances ...
