Atrium City Hall. Gives space to colorful ideas.

The Atrium  is the meeting place in the City Hall for citizens of The Hague and visitors/tourists to The Hague. Cultural, educational, social and commercial exhibitions and events are organized. The Atrium City Hall foundation has been organizing these various activities in the Atrium since the opening of the City Hall in September 1995. The foundation does this on her own initiative, but external parties can also rent the space for an event or exhibition. In this way Atrium City Hall provides a varied picture of what is happening in The Hague and far beyond.

Atrium. Place of many transformations.

From the very first beginning it becomes clear that the Atrium is a place that effortlessly undergoes many impressive transformations and contributes greatly to the dynamics of the city. A concert on different floors, a floating fashion exhibition above the municipal offices or a grand banquet after closing time; the Atrium is open to diverse and challenging ideas.

Atrium City Hall. Mesmerizes the audience.

The public is the center during the activities in the Atrium. Young and old will experience music, dance and theater. Difficult subjects, challenging constructions and innovative concepts are not avoided when organizing activities in the Atrium. The space is visited by more than 8.000 people every week. Whether they come for the municipal offices or especially for an activity, the enrichment of the Hague City Hall is actively experienced by many visitors.  Big and small organizations from the city and far beyond, together with the Atrium City Hall foundation, we strengthen the dynamics in the heart of The Hague.

Documentary 25 Years Foundation Atrium

On September 8, 1995, the City Hall was opened by Mayor Havermans and Queen Beatrix. This day the Atrium was opened for the public, to view the most beautiful activities that have been organized from the start by Atrium City Hall, the foundation behind the many activities in the hall of the Atrium City Hall. In 2020 the Atrium was closed until further notice for activities due to the Corona Measures, yet 2020 remained the perfect time to look back with all kinds of stakeholders, from past and present to the last 25 years. This unique online Dutch & English subtitled documentary is produced by Cue Creative.

Christmas Message 2021

Atrium City Hall organizes the Christmas Sing-ALong in the Atrium of the City Hall in The Hague for many years. A one-time Christmas choir of 300 people is put together, which after rehearsing three times can give a concert to more than 1,000 visitors.

In 2020, due to the corona measures, no concert was given, but there was a special Christmas-Sing-ALong at Home edition on TV West. Unfortunately, 2021 is also a year in which many events have been canceled, including the Christmas Sing-ALong.

But we are happy to let you know that Gregor Bak and Francis van Broekhuizen have some good news for 2022! (Dutch only)

You can already register as a choir member for 2022, go to Register choir member 2022.
