Join us for a summer festival!

Each summer, Groningen hosts a performing arts festival called Noorderzon. The heart of the festival is the idyllic Noorderplantsoen (a city park) where, for eleven summer days, a freely accessible festival village appears almost out of nowhere to provide a setting for theatre, dance, music, literature and visual art in combination with eating, drinking and social encounters.

On Monday the 24th, we will organize a meeting point at the festival grounds of the Noorderplantsoen (see conference locations map), where you will receive a consumption coupon you can spend on the festival grounds. We gather at the meeting point 19 o’clock; look for a sign with the BCEP logo. You will be free to explore the festival grounds and enjoy a rich assortment of catering facilities that Noorderzon offers. Noorderzon works as much as possible with biological/organically grown products, Fairtrade items and ‘green’ packaging material. So there is something for everyone!

You will be provided a consumption coupon when you come to the meeting point. All further festival consumptions will be at your own expense, but there will be something for every budget. Noorderzon offers a lot of free (musical) entertainment in the open air, but should you like to visit specific theatre/dance/music shows, you can buy tickets in advance at their website. Ticket sales open July 27th.
