Secret Rooms // Location theatre festival for curious minds

Art & Cult

Volkshotel presents Secret Rooms – Location theatre festival for curious minds. Sunday February 26th from 13:00 till 22:00.

Once a year, Volkshotel transforms into one big stage where bright, new theatre makers go wild. Expect a festival where you might bump into a little band in the elevator, join a theater-genius in an intimate hotel room or get lost in the smokey basement.

Follow a lively group of makers right up onto the roof or explore the conference halls and hidden areas all across the hotel. Discover live music, theatre, performance art, mime and spoken word. Getting hungry? Werkplaats offers cool drinks and tasty meals to keep you going.
