Kodály Center announcement 


General rules, face covering, arrival, admission, seating, disinfection and ticket purchase

General rules, face covering

No limitations have been imposed on the number of visitors simultaneously present in the building, thus in accordance with the current national guidance, Kodály Centre can operate at full capacity.

For staff working in visitors areas it is mandatory to wear face masks covering both mouth and nose.

For our audience, wearing face masks is also obligatory  in visitors areas and in concert halls. Performers will not be wearing face masks on stage.

Arrival, admission

We kindly ask you to arrive 30-45 minutes prior to our events. You can enter the audience area 30 minutes before the concert begins, so the number of visitors waiting in the lobby is minimised. Please, make sure you maintain the safe physical distance as much as possible.

Concerts can be attended only be individuals free of symptoms. We kindly ask those who are not feeling well not to attend our events.

For the protection of the health of our concert audience, we take the temperature of all individuals entering the building with a no-touch thermometer at all entrances. Should a visitor have a temperature of 37.5 °C or higher, we repeat the measurement after 10 minutes, which will clearly determine if he or she can enter the building or not: nobody with a body temperature of 37.5 °C or higher can enter Kodály Centre. Those individuals who could not attend a given event because of this reason can receive a refund at any of our info-points within 30 days from the date of the given performance.

Owing to the above-described admission policy, the concert will begin when all visitors have taken their seats. We kindly ask for your patience and understanding for potentially belated start times.


No special seating arrangement are made in our concert halls; everyone can take the seat their tickets indicate.

Disinfection and sterilisation

Automatic balanced ventilation is applied in the visitors areas of Kodály Centre, which ensures the regular, highly efficient fresh air supply of all spaces. Our ventilation systems are continually monitored, and our mechanical ventilation units are set to a high value prior to all concerts and during the intermissions in order to provide high indoor air quality which involves quick and complete oxygen replenishment.


The number of janitors of the building has been increased, and prior to the concert events, we pay special attention to the disinfection of audience seats, door handles and rest rooms. Upon entering the building, all visitors are given the opportunity to disinfect their hands.

All staff members and performers active in Kodály Centre are free of symptoms, have been temperature-tested, and if necessary , COVID-19 tested.

Ticket purchase

We kindly ask our audience to purchase their tickets primarily online.
