ABOUT VISITING US
Theatres may receive visitors. Why aren't there any shows?
When Luxor could only receive 30 visitors, we could not think of a viable plan. With the loosening of the measurements which the government announced on the 24th of June however we may and can receive you in the near future. From August 1st we are ready to receive visitors for special shows in an intimate setting. Please check our homepage voor new announced shows.

ABOUT YOUR TICKETS
I have tickets to a show up and including May 31st. When do I hear from Luxor?
We e-mailed all ticket buyers on March 25th. We used the e-mailaddress that tickets were bought with. Be sure to check your spamfilter if you didn't receive an e-mail. Customers without an e-mail address were called.
Maybe you bought your tickets to a Luxor show somewhere else, like NTK, Eventim or Ticketmaster. They will inform you on the show and your tickets. If you bought your tickets with us, we will in inform you.
On this page you can check which shows are rescheduled.
Why do I get a Luxor Tegoedbon (voucher)?
Of course we hope you will visit Luxor Theatre another time. With the voucher you can pay for that visit.
We hope that we can resist the economic impact the corona measures will have. More than 80% of our income are from public, the rest come from subsidies and sponsoring. The subsidy we get is too small to keep our business up and running. Most of our income is gone sinds March 11th.
With the Luxor voucher we create financial space to keep our staff employed and to work on new shows, which you can enjoy in the future. With this settlement not only Luxor, its producers and its artists are helped, but also all those people behind the scenes, like box office or catering employees, set builders, technicians, script writers and directors of our artists.
This settlement is nationwide, and will be applied by all theatres, pop stages and festivals and is regocnized by ACM (Authory Consumer and Market) and by the government.
Read the nationwide settlement ‘Ticketgelden Coronacrisis cultuur- en sportevenementen’ here (in Dutch).
More background information on this nationale settlement, you can find here (all-in Dutch):
When do I get a voucher?
You get a voucher when a show is cancelled. The value is the same as your tickets (plus any transaction fees).
When we can reschedule a show, you can choose to receive tickets to the new show or a Luxor voucher.
What is the validity of my voucher?
The Luxor Voucher is valid until July 1st 2022. So there is over two years time for you to buy tickets for another show you like. If you haven’t (completely) cashed your voucher by that time we will deposit the (remaining) amount to your bank account. We will be in contact in due time.
How does the Luxor voucher work?
When you book your tickets at the box office or by telephone, please say that you would like to pay with the voucher you received. Our employee will ask for the Vouchercode, which is on your voucher.
When you book your tickets, choose for ‘Luxor waardebon’ when you reach Betaalwijze (Payment method). Then you fill in the Vouchercode which is on your voucher.
The value of the voucher will be deducted from the total amount of your order. If the total amount of your order is less than the value of your voucher, the remaining value is still on your voucher.
