Practical information


Our guarded cloakroom is located on the right side of the foyer.

You pay 2 euros per coat rack with a maximum of 2 coats per coat rack that you give in custody.

Opening of the doors

Information on timing, safety and mobility can be found at the bottom of the details page a few days before the event. The doors usually open one and a half hours before the start of the event. From then on you can go to the bars for a snack and a drink.

Access to the venue

  • Always offer your own ticket at the entrance and not someone else's. That way scanning goes much more smoothly and you avoid waiting at the door.

  • Do you save your tickets on your phone? Then make sure your ticket is clearly visible. That means: full clarity and no cracks in your screen.

  • Do not bring any luggage, (large) handbags or (back) bags and respond correctly to any requests from security.
    Bags may not be larger than 21 cm x 30 cm x 10 cm (A4 format).

  • It is forbidden to enter the venue with bottles, cans, alcohol, sound recorders, film and photo cameras, fireworks and objects that may pose a safety hazard. Smartphones with a photo function are tolerated unless otherwise specified.

  • Photographing and filming during the event is prohibited, unless otherwise determined by the organizer. Entering the venue implies consent to possible searches.

  • Smoking is strictly prohibited in the venue.

  • Pets are not allowed. Blind and visually impaired persons may bring a guide dog. 
    Please contact us in advance about this.

Visit with toddlers

We very often have children’s shows in our theatre. If you come to Stadsschouwburg Antwerpen with small children, please keep in mind the following arrangements.

  • Buggies and diaper bags can be left safely in our cloakroom.

  • A changing mat and a nappy container are available in the sanitary area.

  • The theatre has raised cushions on loan for the little ones. These cushions are available while supplies last.

  • Take into account the noise level at children's shows: provide your child with appropriate hearing protection.

  • There is “1 ticket per spectator” in the theatre. Children are not allowed to sit on the lap and you also have to buy a ticket when the child is staying in a child car seat. For fire safety reasons, the theatre has a maximum number of people allowed, regardless of age.

  • If you have any questions about the possibilities of breastfeeding in the theatre, please contact us at +32 3 400 69 69 or mail to
