I am bringing a group of 40 tourists to Budapest, 21 to 24 september, and would like to book tickets for the folk show. I was there several times with other groups, Britannia Travel Ltd, Malta. Please can you reserve for me tickets and give me special prices, thank you. I like tickets for sunday 22 september. If I am not mistaken the theatre is near St Stephen’s cathedral.

Manuel

Hello Manuel, we have sent you the travel agency discount prices for your group. The show on September 22 is in Budai Vigado, the theater you remember is Danube Palace (the show is in the Danube Palace on Sept 23: would it be more suitable?)
Please let us know.

Hello,
I would like to book 2 tickets for the 26th of october. Could you please tell me which group will be performing and where will the performance take place?

Hello Marie, on October 26 the Hungarian folk show will be in the Danube Palace, the Rajko Folk Ensemble is performing (Hungaria Orchestra and Folk Ensemble) at 8 pm.

I would like to book tickets for Saturday the 30th November 2013 – are there two seats in cat 2 available and can we also book the river cruise that night too. How do we get from the concert to the cruise please.

Finally – where is the concert on the 30th November please?

Many thanks

Alan

may i know how far away from ibis city budapest hotel to the concern hall by walk possible
thank you

I will be in budapest in january 2014 , I would like to know about the folk show programs . Tell me know is there any show that days ?
thanks a lot

Hello Tika, unfortunately there are no folk dance show dates scheduled for January. The first Budapest folk show is on Feb 22 in 2014.

We will be in the Marriott Budapest on April 2014, and would like to know ,on the 19th where is the show, to see if we can just walk to it from the Hotel, and probably do the cruise also.

Hello Ramon, in April, all the Hungarian folk dance shows will be performed in the Danube Palace in the city center. The palace is 3 min walk from the river Danube, 3 min walk from the Basilica (St Stephen’s Basilica), 10 min walk from Hotel Marriott in Apaczai Csere Janos street (Marriott has more hotels in Budapest, please check where yours is situated) – the route from the Hotel Marriott Budapest to the Danube Palace folk show venue can be seen here on google maps http://goo.gl/maps/hrN6e

We will be visiting Budapest in July 2014 with two small children, 4 & 6 years olds. Are they welcome to the show as well?

Hello Valeria, as a mom, I am not sure to be honest. My daughter would be happier at a place where she can dance (3.5 years old) than at a show where she needs to sit. The Hungarian folk dance shows start at 8 pm, which is late-ish for most kids, but of course, if you think that they will enjoy it, there is no minimum age restriction for visiting the shows. If I may suggest, you could try to take them to a Hungarian dance house (tanchaz) for children, which they would absolutely love. There is an easy to find central place with many dance house options in Arany Janos Street called Aranytiz cultural house.

Hello

Me and My wife would be in Budapest on 6th and 7th May. This is the first time for us in Budapest and so look forward to a dance show. wanted to know what is available on these dates, any recommendations for first timers and how I can buy the tickets before I get there

Thanks for your help

Abhijit

Hello Abhijit, hope you will love Budapest. The Hungarian folk shows are from 8 pm, available dates are May 6 (Budai Vigado building) and May 7 (Danube Palace building). All dance show programs are aimed at first time visitors. For more experienced visitors we recommend joining one of the beginner dance house clubs, where they can also try themselves at some dances, learn a few motifs. Tickets for the Budapest folk shows are available via booking

Have a nice time in Hungary!

I would like to book tickets for the show at the Danube Palace, I wish tickets for May 1st or 3rd. Which date would coincide with the show held here?

Dear Margit,
May 1 is in the Budai Vigado with the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble.
May 2 is in the Danube Palace with the Hungaria Orchestra and Folk Ensemble (former Rajko Folk Band Show)
May 3 no show scheduled
May 4 is in the Danube Palace with the Hungaria Orchestra and Folk Ensemble (former Rajko Folk Band Show)

I have a group of 4 and plan to book your show for either Oct 23rd or 24th, 2014. Which theater and performers will be on those dates.

sorry I meant Oct 22nd or 23rd . Which theater and performers will be on those dates.

Dear Ron,
the folk dance shows in Budapest have two main venues:
October 22 – the Hungarian folk show will be on the Pest side city center, in the Danube Palace, 8 pm
October 23 – the Hungarian folk show will be on the Buda side, in the Budai Vigado building, 8 pm

There is no dance show scheduled for Oct 24 evening. Oct 23 is a national holiday, please allow a bit more time to get to the show venue as Budapest public transport will be on a weekend / holiday schedule.

Thank you for the quick response. Is the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble or the Danube Folk Ensemble scheduled for Oct 22, 2014 and Oct 23, 2014 as that may make our decision on which date?

on the date of october 15 2014

2) Also, How far is the venue from the Novotel Centrum/Aquincum Hotels?
3) is it available on both dates – 26th and 27th
Thank you,

Hi, we are arriving in Budapest on the 19th September until 26th September 2015, please could you tell me which dates the show will be at the Buda side. Kind Regards Sarah

I’d like to bring my family to the show this Saturday, nov. 7, 2015. Which venue and ensemble will be used for the performance? We have a 4 yr old and 7 yr old. Do they pay the student rates or is their a family ticket available for two adults and two children? Thank you.

Dear Amanda, the folk ensemble scheduled on November 7 will be the Hungaria Orchestra and Folk Ensemble (former Rajko), in the Danube Palace in the city centre of Budapest.
For children you can buy the student ticket (for toddlers no ticket is needed if they sit on your lap). In your case, the family would be paying for 2 adults and 2 children. Or if you decide to keep the little one with you on the lap, you can just buy 1 ticket for the older child.

We are interested in the performance on April 22, 2016. For 2 people. Can you please tell me which group will be performing then and where? Thank you.

Dear Angela, on Apr 22 the Hungaria Folk Ensemble & Orchestra will perform in the Danube Palace.

I would like to book 2 tkts on May 25th, 2016. Can you please advise what is available on that day, time.

Can you please advise as what shows are available on May 25th, and which place.

Dear Vikram, the Danube Folk Ensemble will perform on May 25 in the Danube Palace.

Dear friends, we are coming to Budapest on February 22 – 24. Will you do the show on one of the evenings? Thank you, Jan.
