Do you have any questions?
- How do you adapt the school visits?
School classes that visit us are met by hosts who help to keep distance between the groups in the foyer and place each class/group in a separate area in the concert hall. Several entrances to the concert hall are used to reduce the risk of meetings between schools/classes. Read more about the measures we take to make your visit to us as safe and secure as possible.
- Can students eat a packed lunch in the Concert Hall?
No, right now it is not possible to eat a packed lunch in the Concert Hall.
