PAARD in coronatijden

Update: As you will undoubtedly understand, the measures just announced will unfortunately have consequences for our program and Paard has to close till half Januari 2022. We are working hard to find an appropriate solution for each show. We try to reschedule and if there is no other option we cancel. This is in consultation with the artist, so give us some time. Ticketbuyers will receive an email from us as soon as there is clarity about the show! So you do not have to contact us yourself. We also post the news on the website and in the Facebook event.

We hope we can welcome you again after the lockdown! Until then, stay safe!

corona admission > QR code
In addition to your Paard entrance ticket – you will need a corona admission (QR code) that you must show in the CoronaCheckApp or you can make a printout. Look here for more information about what counts as a valid Corona admission ticket. Please note: a separate vaccination certificate or separate test result does not apply. You really need to generate a QR code in the CoronaCheckApp. The advantage of this is that you can let go of the 1,5 m rule within or.


Relocations and cancellations
As soon as it is clear whether a show will be cancelled or rescheduled, the ticket buyers will receive an email and we will mention this on the website as well. So keep an eye on your email! If there is an audience at a show where we previously communicated that it was Livestream Only, we will send all applicants an email. Sold-out concerts are still being moved to dates that we hope may allow more people to enter the hall again. When moving, visitors are given the option to return their tickets and receive a refund. In the event of a cancellation, visitors will also receive an email and will automatically receive a refund. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]

The options for PAARD visitors at a glance

Why the promotion ‘Save your ticket, enjoy later’? The financial impact of the corona measures is also enormous for the cultural sector. That is why a regulation has been drawn up in consultation with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Authority for Consumers & Markets that offers solutions in this exceptional situation for the sector. Under the heading ‘Save your ticket, enjoy later’ we ask visitors to keep their ticket(s) and to come and enjoy the concert in question later (or another concert for which you want to use your PAARD credit). Read more about the cabinet-wide package for organizations and self-employed professionals in the cultural sector on the website of the national government. The arrangement ‘Save your ticket, enjoy later’ also falls under this.

Save your ticket: Do you have a ticket for a rescheduled show and are you going on the new date? Then you don’t have to do anything. Your current ticket (with old date on it) remains valid for the new date.


Enjoy later: In 2020 we offered that you could convert tickets into a credit. You can see your credit in your PAARD account on the website, and it is valid for a minimum of 12 months and you always retain your right to request a refund. These credits can still be spent in 2021.

Refund: Ticket buyers will receive an email as soon as an event is canceled or moved. In the event of a cancellation, you will receive a full refund (including service costs). In the event of a relocation, you will have four weeks to indicate that you want a refund. Please note: the refund period is longer than you are used to with a relocation or cancellation. The repayment term has been determined in consultation with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Authority for Consumers & Markets in the regulation ‘Ticket fees Corona crisis Cultural and sports events‘. This arrangement is there because it concerns an exceptional situation. In this regulation, the refund period of no later than 1 month after the new date of the rescheduled event applies in the event of a relocation and in the event of a cancellation this is 3 months after the cancellation.
