Psst… a fun fact from Our Brunssum

Did you know that the open-air theatre in Brunssum is the only open-air theatre with a fixed roof over the seating area for the audience as well as the stage where the artists perform? Great for when it’s raining, but equally nice when the sun is burning; a sheltered spot in all weather conditions.

3.    Magical music from all corners

A place where blues, jazz and rock & roll come to live.

No need to travel far to hear music from all corners of the world. Brunssum has it all! From classic to pop, from the blues or jazz to rock & roll. Proud to present  The Rolling Beatles, Phil Bee Trio or Guido’s Orchestra and so much more. It will be an evening you’ll never forget. Promise! 

4.    Happy as a kid

A place where children’s dreams come true.

Theatre is for all ages, even for the youngest ones. So, isn’t it just great that they can help shape the show by Puk and Pien? Or perhaps your children love listening to stories, which is often scheduled on Wednesday afternoon, often without charge. There are also regular shows on Saturdays. Have a look if there is anything to your liking and bring your kids and enjoy!

Psst… another fun fact from Our Brunssum: 

Did you know that the roof of our open-air theatre holds no fewer than 14 quotes from theatre legends? Just look up. Have you found and read them all?

5.    Film and food

A place where your taste buds are part of the experience.

Evenings revolving around a specific country; like a Greek night where you can enjoy Greek delicacies on your plate while watching the happy and romantic film Mama Mia.

6.    A jewel in the park

The setting in the idyllic Vijverpark, the atmosphere in this fantastic green oasis is so unique and magical, it beggars description. You need to see and experience for yourself!
