Brussels continues with cultural sector reopening


The breathtaking Cirque Royal venue in Brussels is finally reopening its doors to the public with a concert by the group Dionysos on September 3.

Mayor of Brussels Philippe Close stated: “Being able to organise such events again in our city is everything we needed. It is a real breath of fresh air for the people of Brussels, for the artists and for the staff of the Cirque Royal.”

All the events will be organized in a safely manner using the Covid Safe Ticket, while other precautions, such as the closure of the changing rooms and bar, will also be taken into account.

Brussels’ alderman for culture Delphine Houba stated: “The reopening of an iconic venue for music like this one is really good news. The programming of the theatres is finally starting to pick up again and I have no doubt that the public will be there to celebrate the return of indoor events as it should be and in complete safety”.

After organising larger outdoor events such as Arena5 or Back On Stage, further reopening of the cultural sector is a logical step for the City of Brussels. Cirque Royal reopening is one of the first major venues in Belgium to restart in an, at least almost, normal way.
