Vooruit is a protected, hundred-year-old listed building with many floors, staircases and hidden corners. We try as much as possible to make our events and all the different spaces accessible for people with disabilities. If you have a disability, it's always good to let us know when you reserve your ticket. During events we will be happy to have a member of staff guide you to your place.

The building is constantly being tinkered with to make it as accessible as possible for people with reduced mobility. With elevators, ramps, automatic doors and removable theater seats, we come a long way. We supplement that with assistance from a VIERNULVIER staff member at performances and events. This is why it is important that you give us a call through the ticket office when reserving your tickets.
Entrance hall & ticket desk
You will find a push button operated door at the entrance to the entrance hall, which takes you directly into the entrance hall. In the entrance hall there is also an elevator to reach the Ballroom and Dom Hall. The ticket counter has a lowered section, making it easier for people in wheelchairs to order tickets or ask for information.
Each hall is accessible to persons with wheelchairs, accompanied by a VIERNULVIER staff member. Through our elevators, we can get everyone where they need to be. If we are aware of your disability, we can also hold an appropriate seat - usually in the front row - for you. There is also a toilet near each venue that is adapted for people in wheelchairs.
VIERNULVIER Café & Terrace
In a wheelchair, it is easier to get to the VIERNULVIER Café via the automatic door in the entrance hall - see above. The Café's toilets are accessible via the elevator in the entrance hall. The Terrace is accessible via the Café. There is a seamless passage without stairs there, where on the left is an elevator that takes you to the Terrace level (+1).
The tours are (mostly) accessible to persons in wheelchairs. Through elevators and ramps almost all rooms are accessible.
For specific questions regarding the accessibility of the Vooruit, feel free to email email@example.com.
Accessible tickets can be booked through our box office.

A number of performances explicitly state 'relaxed performance'. With a relaxed performance we extend a warm welcome to everyone at VIERNULVIER, especially those who find it difficult to fit in with standard theater conventions: people with learning or movement disorders, autism, neurological conditions, people with Tourette's,...
- During a relaxed performance, we do not completely extinguish the hall light.
- Spectators are allowed to make sounds and movements during the performance.
- Those who want can react to the performance in a spontaneous way.
- Going to the toilet during the performance? You can leave the hall without any problem.
- And if you don't make it to the theater in time, you can always enter the theater - latecomers are welcome.
VIERNULVIER provides audio description and/or an introductory feel tour whenever and wherever possible. Audio description is a technique whereby a performance becomes accessible to persons with visual impairments. Headphones provide additional information about what is happening on stage, and what does not come across clearly from dialogues. Before the performance we provide a short introduction and the actors introduce themselves. That way you immediately know which voice belongs to which character.
If it makes sense for the experience of a performance and is feasible for the company, VIERNULVIER organizes a feeling tour on stage itself. You can touch the set and props at that time. That way you know what the audio description refers to during the performance.
