Royal Athenaeum François Bovesse

The Royal Theatre of Namur
As another innovation for this year, the Theatre of Namur is opening us its doors.
Appeared in 17th century in our region, the theatrical activities took place on sites occasionally developed for.
In 1822, the Council of Regency decided to start the construction of a building exclusively dedicated to perfoming arts and music. In the wake of the French revolution of 1789, a lot of buidings and religious sites were destroyed. The created space could be reused for new urban facilities such as theatre, kiosks, banks, parks ... Thus, the Theatre of Namur occupied the location of the former Convent of the Annonciades.
The theatre was built in one year and inaugurated in 1824. It's a real precious casket more for the magnificent masterpieces of our exhibitors.
