BIG BANG Festival is a fantastic event with a lot of music, theatre, workshops, good food and wonderful installations. Our building is transformed into an adventurous musical labyrinth for children from 4 till 104 years old. Attend a concert, join a workshop or participate in a scavenger hunt through our hidden music rooms.
A production by Zonzo Compagnie in coproduction with Wilminktheater & Muziekcentrum Enschede - with the support of Concordia kunst en cultuur, Kaliber Kunstenschool, Nederlandse Reisopera, Phion, ArtEZ Conservatorium and the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.

About Wilminktheater & Muziekcentrum Enschede
In our programming we are looking for synergy, to a natural connection across styles. We are convinced that we can let our audience enjoy the unknown and encourage them to engage new adventures. We believe that performing arts develop the imagination, provide distraction and genuinely make people happier.
