To arrest the further spread of the coronavirus, the government has asked theatres to ensure more distance between different visitor bubbles, for the duration of at least one month.
For the time being, visitors will be unable to have a drink at the KVS bars before and after performances due to new measures introduced by the city of Brussels crisis team. From Monday 19 October at 7am all bars and restaurants must close for one month. Café Congo will therefor remain closed for the time being.
On 28 November the yearly solidarity campaign by Bruzz, Brussel Helpt, will be organising the World’s Largest Spaghetti Feast for the third year in a row, in collaboration with various Brussels partners. KVS will be joining the fray and cooking spaghetti, with all proceeds going to charity. This year the chosen charity is Babytheek, a sort of lending library for baby supplies.
