Scheltema Leiden strongly believes that cultural events are important. With around 100 public cultural productions each year, we render a significant contribution to Leiden’s cultural life. In addition to hosting cultural productions, we have been working for many years with cultural co-tenants Muziektheater de Veenfabriek and Theatergroep Domino.

Scheltema Leiden’s multi-functional Theater offers a highly versatile setting. Its high ceiling and spacious balustrade going around add a unique ambiance to this room. The customizable stage of the auditorium will create just the right atmosphere for any cultural event. Our sunny Exporoom also doubles as a venue for small-scale lectures and exhibitions.

Scheltema Leiden is a subsidy-free organization. Despite this we manage to offer a financially affordable platform for any form of culture.
