Free? Free reservations? Tickets?

.
For some performances, you need to reserve your seat in advance, as the number of seats is limited. For this edition those are Sinking Sideways, Joren De Cooman and Samuel Rhyner.
These performances are paying: Le Doux Supplice (base price € 13 - support Cirque Plus € 19 - Uitpas opportunity fee € 2.60) and Jam.Shenanigans (base price € 6 - support Cirque Plus € 10 - Uitpas opportunity fee € 1.20). You can buy tickets for these performances via this website or at the counter at In&Uit or at the info stand during Cirque Plus. Performances will start punctually, meaning latecomers will not be allowed in or have their tickets refunded.
We urge you to attend the performance on time. Reserved tickets that were not collected will be released again 15 min before the start. People on the waiting list will then have the first chance to enter.
If there are still seats available, it is possible to book tickets at the info stand on Cirque Plus itself starting from 1:00 pm. You can see which performances are already sold out via the programme overview on the website.
In&Uit can be found at 't Zand 34, below the Concertgebouw. You can also book via the In&UIT ticket line on 078 15 20 20. More info can be found on the website www.ticketsbrugge.be.

How do you get to Cirque Plus?

We recommend taking public transport or coming on foot or by bike.
You can rent bikes at Bruges railwaystation (www.blue-bike.be) or take a bicycle taxi that will take you from anywhere in the city to the Cirque Plus festival site. (www.fietstaxibrugge.be or www.greenrides.eu/greenrides).
There is bicycle parking in Grootseminarie Brugge, just after the main entrance. Please do not park bikes on Peterseliestraat out of respect for our dear neighbours.
To get from the station to the Grootseminarie using De Lijn, there are two options: You can take Bus 1 and get off at the Kruispoort stop, after which it's a 16-minute walk to Peterseliestraat. Alternatively, you can take Bus 2 and get off at the Sabbestraat stop, followed by a 12-minute walk to Peterseliestraat. For more details and to check the schedule, visit www.delijn.be
Buses run until 11:00 pm. On Friday and Saturday nights, evening lines run until 3:00 am. These buses will no longer change numbers for the evening lines. Line 1 and 2 will therefore keep the same number until the end of their service. For more info, visit the De Lijn website (www.delijn.be).
There is no free shuttle service.
Plan your journey via www.belgiantrain.be to Bruges railway station. From the station, you can either walk, cycle, bus or taxi to the Cirque Plus site.
The number of parking spaces in the Peterseliestraat is very limited. We therefore strongly advise against driving your car up there. Residents can, as always, park for free in the neighbourhood with a digital parking permit. For visitors, paid parking applies, as everywhere else in the city centre. At the P&R at Boogschutterslaan and Randparking Lodewijk Coiseaukaai, there are also free parking spaces. More information can be found at www.brugge.be/parkeren

At the P&R on Boogschutterslaan and the Randparking on Lodewijk Coiseaukaai, there are also free parking spaces and connecting bus lines to the city center.
Parking spaces for people with disabilities (you must have a valid parking card) can be found in Peterseliestraat. Right next to the entrance there are 6 spaces and 2 spaces near house numbers 5 and 100.

Food & drinks

Enjoy drinks at democratic prices or satisfy your hunger at the food stands with savoury and sweet dishes. Healthy, tasty and with a small footprint: both front and backstage, we choose 100% veggie snacks and the most local and/or fair trade products possible. Bring your water bottle and fill it for free at the fresh tap water tap.
All drinking cups and bottles as well as plates and cutlery are collected back for reuse. These materials require a big investment from us, so be sure not to throw them in the bin or take them home! Sort them at the waste points scattered around the site. We do not ask for a deposit but we do ask for your cooperation!
At Cirque Plus, you may bring your own picnic but sort your rubbish and don't leave anything behind. Cows return to pasture and get sick if they eat plastic or glass.
Payment at the bar and food stands is made with tokens. These can be bought at the token stand, daily until 11:00 pm. Payment can be made in cash or by bancontact.
Tokens are refunded at the token booth. This can be done daily until 11:00 pm. After Cirque Plus ends on Sunday 28 July at 11:00 pm, no more tokens will be refunded.

The Cirque Plus site and all other locations where performances take place are accessible to wheelchair users. Only in wet weather can the meadow be more difficult to reach independently by wheelchair.
