Can I bring my child to the concert?
The Concert Hall and its residents offer concerts both for adult and child audiences. Each organizer determines the target audience for their event individually. Evening events are most often intended for adult audiences, and children of certain ages may be denied attendance. Information is available in the description of each event.
Children under the age of 5 may be denied attendance to concerts organized by SIA “Lielais Dzintars” intended for adult audiences.
Children under the age of 7 may be denied attendance to concerts organized by VSIA “Liepājas Simfoniskais orķestris”.
Will children under 7 be allowed to attend an event if the websites of Biļešu Paradīze and the Concert Hall state: “Children under the age of 5 or 7 MAY BE DENIED ATTENDANCE to concerts intended for adult audiences!”
