Safe concert visit in PAARD
We want to continue as much as possible of the current program in an adapted manner. We do this in the safest way possible and within government regulations. For this concert it means that a maximum of 30 people can be present who can visit the PAARD. Of course, our (strict) 1.5m measures that have already been implemented will remain in force. There are also a number of new rules: mouth masks are mandatory in the building (except on the seat). PAARD’s catering industry is closed, but visitors are allowed to consume their own water. We hope that everyone will continue to do their very best with us to comply with the measures within and outside PAARD. For more information click here.
