When should I arrive at the theatre?

Arrive in good time so that you and your party can enjoy drinks and snack and take in the theatre’s ornamentation by renowned artists. The doors open one hour before the performance. Arrive no later than 20 minutes before the performance so that you have time to leave your coat in the cloakroom and find your seat. Welcome!

Cloakroom fee

For the wellbeing and safety of all our visitors, coats and large bags are not permitted in the auditorium.


You can purchase your cloakroom ticket in advance when you book your theatre tickets. It only costs SEK 20 per outer garment and you will be able to use the express window on the left-hand side of the cloakroom (as seen from the staircase), which will speed up your arrival.

Pay on arrival

If you choose to pay for a cloakroom ticket on arrival, it will cost you SEK 40 per outer garment.


The cloakroom is free of charge for children under 12 years of age.


  • Upper foyer: toilets are on the left after the cloakroom.
  • Banqueting Hall: immediately to the right beneath the stairs and further into the Banqueting Hall foyer.
  • Figaro Hall: beneath the stairs on either side of the bar.
  • Conference rooms: outside all conference rooms.

There are accessible toilets adjacent to all toilets. For more details about accessible toilets, please see under Accessibility.


Intermissions last for approximately 20 minutes, although not all shows have an intermission. See what applies to your visit under the heading Events. You can book a table for the intermission by speaking to a member of the Theatre Bar staff.

Halmstad Tourist Centre is beside the main entrance

Since the end of March 2020, you can visit Halmstad Tourist Centre in its new premises in the theatre’s lower foyer. Staff in the centre will be happy to answer any questions about Halmstad Theatre or the city in general. Halmstad Tourist Centre acts as the theatre’s box office and is open before performances at Halmstad Theatre.


Both the Theatre Bar and the cloakroom accept payment by card and cash. We do not accept American Express.

Feel free to purchase your cloakroom ticket when booking your theatre tickets, as this is both cheaper and quicker once you arrive at the theatre. See cloakroom prices.

Dress code

While it is certainly nice to dress up to visit the theatre, this is entirely up to you. Come as you are and enjoy the show!


Not all shows permit photography and/or filming. Speak to the usher at the door to the auditorium if you are unsure.

Visiting children

Children are more than welcome as long as the show in question does not have an age limit. All children up to the age of 12 can use the cloakroom free of charge.

A limited number of cushions are available to borrow free of charge just inside the doors of the Grand Auditorium and Figaro Hall.

Flowers to the cast

Would you like to show your appreciation by sending flowers to a member of the cast? Please leave bouquets with staff in the Theatre Bar before the show and they will be happy to ensure that they reach the right person. Remember to attach a card with the name(s) of the intended recipient.
