Showbox without live shows

Showbox without live shows

We had been looking forward to seeing children, young people, families and delegate audiences in the hall at all 15 live performances that were to play at this year's Showbox, but that was not the case. The 16th edition of Showbox will be, to put it mildly, very different than before.
See you next year

See you next year

The showbox' christmas tree is turned off, the poster wall is down and the last performance is played on the 15th edition of Showbox. Thanks to all grown and young audience members, partners from home and abroad, venues, companies, performers, technicians, volunteers, Young Voices, international delegates, all who have participated in professional events, mingles and parties.
