Café Boom is the place to go for a good cup of coffee, a nice piece of cake from Ama, an ice cream, a juice or a good glass of wine. Hidden under the trees a real hidden gem. The cafe is run by the wonderful volunteers of the Zuiderparktheater.
Tickets for performances are available at the online box office www.zuiderparktheater.nl. There is no physical box office in the theater.
The Zuiderparktheater is the perfect location for summer events and performances. There is room for 1,000 visitors, but the green surroundings also offer a unique atmosphere for smaller numbers. Please contact the Zuiderparktheater for prices and availability.
The Zuiderparktheater uses a bad-weather protocol, whereby the performances in principle always take place, unless the KNMI issues a red code. In consultation with the artist, another day will be chosen to make up for the performance. If an activity is cancelled, you will always find a notification about this on the website and on the social media channels of the Zuiderparktheater. In the event of a thunderstorm, the performance is interrupted and the audience is taken to a safe place. If the weather is safe, it will be considered in consultation with the artist whether the performance can still be continued.
The Zuiderparktheater is located on an island in the middle of the Zuiderpark. The park has several entrances: on Vreeswijkstraat, Loevesteinlaan, Melis Stokelaan and Veluweplein.
