Culture tickets for seniors

The City of Brussels gives Brussels seniors free tickets for various cultural performances.

These tickets allow the persons who:

  • are at least 65 years and
  • have their residence on the territory of the City of Brussels (postal codes 1000 - 1020 - 1120 - 1130)

to attend a play or performance of their choice in the following theatres:

Please note: at Bozar, it concerns 2 single performances:

  • 28 September 2021. Lubricant for Life by Woodman (in Dutch)
  • 19 October 2021. What do you think of western civilization? by Simone Milsdochter (in Dutch)

All seniors are entitled to one coupon that is valid for two people for 1 show at 1 place of their choice, as long as there are places available.

How to get tickets?

In the context of the Covid-19 crisis and to ensure your safety, applications can only be submitted using the application form below (with copy of your ID card):

Send the form by e-mail, by 20 September 2021 at the latest:

Or by post to:

  • Culture Service of the City of Brussels
    Rue Sainte-Catherine 11
    1000 Brussels

Applications are processed in order of receipt (the postmark or date of receipt of the e-mail serves as proof). The Culture Service will answer the requests as best as possible and contact everyone (by e-mail or by post) to confirm the chosen location based on preference and availability.

The confirmation will be accompanied by all necessary information (brochure with the program or how to get it, Covid-19 conditions, restrictions,...).

Places are only available at our partner institutions, after reservation.

This initiative is in addition to the permanent senior discount that already exists in the cultural centres of the City.
