Theatre festival Groningen16-24 nov2018

Jonge Harten is a nine-day theatre festival that gives a stage to young theatre makers.

In practically all the different theatres (and some other great locations), in Groningen. Come and enjoy dance, music, expressive and physical theatre and other performances that will make you laugh, grab you by the throat or amaze you. Have a chat with us in the bar afterwards, drink a beer with the makers, or come and shake a leg at the heart of our festival. Wow! Will we be seeing you here?

Do you want to participate on forehand or during the festival? Nice, because we are still looking for volunteers! Register on and tell us what you would like to do.

Jonge Harten 20 years!

The festival celebrated her 20th edition in 2017, and it was an extraordinary celebration!
