The dance hall is housed in the old hospital from the nineteenth century.
On the second floor you will find the welcome desk where you can check in for the 2018 edition and get all the information you need. We have a large number of coat stands available and separate spaces to get dressed up before heading for the dance floor.
Free drinks (coffee, tea, water) and snacks will be offered at one end of the dance floor. Some fine shoes and clothes will be for sale. At the other end you can buy excellent local beers, wine and cava or relax in the lounge chairs.
And last but not least, enjoy the splendid ballroom with a vast wooden dance floor (17 m x 34 m), an excellent sound system and customised lighting.
The medieval Sint John’s Hospital was once one of the largest urban settings for the sick and poor. The nurses who worked there left a lot of stories, objects and works of art. These are still kept in the same place. Furniture, paintings, sculpture and pieces of art are exhibited in the Memling Museum, also on the site, where the visitor can experience a history of 800 years.
In 1976 the hospital was decommissioned. Afterwards, it was restored and since 1989, the site serves as Oud Sint-Jan congress, events and arts center.
