Useful to know
We are delighted that you are interested in visiting Halmstad Theater! To make planning your visit as easy as possible we have compiled information that may be helpful.
Can I bring bags?
Based on the current situation in society, and that the terror threat level is a four, the police authority has decided on a total ban on bags at major events in Sweden.
All major events in Sweden are covered by the decision. This means that all concerts, festivals and sporting events that require permission or registration are subject to a total bag ban for public visitors.
We at Halmstads Teater, together with the organizer, have chosen to follow these rules in connection with performances in Stora salongen. It is believed that we are not subject to a permit or notification obligation. This means that no bags – regardless of size or model – may be taken into the Stora salongen in connection with our performances.
The situation in the world is tense and the safety of our visitors and artists always comes first, hence we are taking these measures. If you have necessary emergency medications, you can put them in a small customized bag that you show on the way into the salon.
When should I arrive at the theater?
Arrive in good time so that you and your party can enjoy drinks and snack and take in the theater’s ornamentation by famous artists. The doors open one hour before the performance. Arrive no later than 20 minutes before the performance so that you have time to leave your coat in the wardrobe and find your seat. Welcome!
For the wellbeing and safety of all our visitors, coats and large bags are not permitted in the auditorium.
