About Jonge Harten

About Jonge Harten

Jonge Harten is an international theatre festival which opens the doors of Groningen’s best stages and theatres to young, talented and extraordinary creators. The festival has been surprising its visitors with brave and forceful performances for already 20 years. Actors do not only perform for Jonge Harten visitors. They speak, shout, move, dance, fall, and perform tricks, while some simply demonstrate the art of remaining absolutely still and silent. The actors find a way to connect with the audience while questioning and challenging their thinking. Jonge Harten fills nine November days with a truly magical spirit. Performances, and awkward aftertalks in the theatres, pop-up actions, and many more undiscovered forms of art can be found all around the city of Groningen!

Festival centre

This year the heart of our festival is located at Oosterstraat 7A, behind the Grand Theatre (in the back of the alley). It is both the heart of the festival, as well as its central meeting point. You can either drop by for a chat, for a dance or a drink. For inquiries, you can turn to our information point that is also located here. You can also purchase tickets here. All very convenient!

The café will open its doors every day at 5 pm, and at 3 pm in the weekend. You can enjoy a festival menu here between 5 and 8 pm.

Stop by for some coffee or a drink!
