    The word theatre derives from the Ancient Greek theatron, meaning "the seeing place". The earliest recorded theatrical event dates back to 2000 BC with the passion plays of Ancient Egypt. This story of the god Osiris was performed annually at festivals throughout the civilization, marking the known beginning of a long relationship between theatre and religion. The ancient Greeks began formalizing theatre as an art, developing strict definitions of tragedy and comedy as well as other forms, including satyr plays. And look where it has come today?

    De Tamboer (meaning the tambourine) is a very important building for the city of Hoogeveen and its theatre definately has a large regional power of attraction. People from far away do have inspirations to have witnessed one night at this magnificant theatre. One must say ... it;s trully a theatre experience!

    Dress Code: There is no formal dress code. I guess that the days of black tie are long gone. You will be perfectly fine wearing Smart/casual outfits. If there is a strict dress code for a show you will be advised beforehand. Jeans and a T-shirt are acceptable in most places, but if you prefer to wear a Suit and Tie you will not be out of place as many people like to dress up for the theatre.

    It's maybe confusing, but Grandcafé The Pub might be a café by name, but not by nature since you're not going to get coffees and croissants at night in this this popular dance club. In Hoogeveen it's the top club and place to be. Grandcafé The Pub is the symbol of the city's celebrated going out scene and a favourite hang-out for everybody freaks who wants to party.

    Once a shop, then pub, a warehouse and finally a grandcafé again, the interior can get noisy, with music playing and many people talking, but it's friendly for a night out. The interior designers did a magnificent job creating a flashy ambiance and you'll have somegreat view at the dancefloor. Some nights are reserved for special themes so keep an eye open for the flyers or internetsite of the grandcafé. There is no admission charged and keep in mind that it can house about 200 people every weekend night and that can' t be wrong! An unforgettable place in the middle of the main strip of going out in Hoogeveen.

    Dress Code: There is no dress code. Just see where Hoogeveen is going, share this place we all hang out and meet people who like the same things.

    De Tamboer is a new (1997) and modern multi-faceted cultural centre for the stage, concerts, cabaret, exhibitions, creative courses and meetings & congresses. The architect of the project is the famous "theatre architect" Onno Greiner. Greiner was the architect of the "old" Tamboer back in 1967. The Hoogeveen theatre was his first theatre design. Now expansion and redevelopment projects are completed, Hoogeveen (and the North of The Netherlands) have again a modern theatre where all theatre performers will feel at home.

    Like many other theatres De Tamboer provides guided backstage tours to the public who want to see how a theatre works. You can see the parts of the theatre that people don't see and your guide can tell you about the theatre's history, and occasionally about the ghosts that haunt the theatre!

    Antwerp is a fine place to have a drink in a pub - and Dutch beer is the best in the world ;-). In Hoogeveen there are many bars in the city centre (especially in the Grote Kerkstraat), mostly dark and tiny affairs exuding a cheerful vitality. Some of them regularly feature live music, and on sunny evenings, the pavement cafe make delightful places to watch the world go by. Opening hours are elastic, with many places only closing when the last customers leave - say 4 or 5 am - and almost all of the bars are open daily.

    Still under construction ...
