What are the room rental prices at AMUZ?

If you are interested in renting one of our rooms, we are happy to make you a tailor-made offer. A quote is drawn up on the basis of the client’s specific requests. It is therefore not desirable to provide a list of standard prices. Please feel free to contact us for more information. You can do so via zaalhuur@amuz.be or call us on the number +32 3 292 36 84.

Which technical facilities are included in the room hire price and which are not?

When renting one of our rooms, our eight-hour technical support package is included. We provide basic lighting and sound amplification, and a member of our technical team will be on standby during your event. Our technician will make sure that all necessary equipment is in place and working correctly. If you would like the technician to help make substantial technical decisions regarding your event, this can be discussed in advance. Please take extra costs into account.

If you rent our venue, the technical equipment available can be used (such as conference chairs, microphones, projector, projection screen, etc) and the appropriate lighting will be provided. However, anything categorised under decoration and mood lighting must be discussed well in advance. This may also involve extra costs.

Is it possible to sell tickets for our performance via AMUZ?

Is it possible to dim the lighting in the main concert hall?

Thanks to the acoustic panels fitted in front of all the stained glass windows of the church, it is possible to completely darken the concert hall. As well as a dimming function, the panels also have an effect on the reverberation in the hall. Therefore, both instrumental and vocal music can be performed in the best possible conditions.
