28, rue Münster, L-2160 Luxembourg-Grund
Located in the Grund area of Luxembourg City, today it houses the offices, an art gallery, a bistro/bar and a well equiped theatre.
The former prison workshop, also known as Tutesall, is home to a 283-seat theater which is equipped for music, plays, dance, movies and projection conferences. The gentle and warm aura of the room, the velvety darkness, the overpowering presence of wood, the soaring ceiling, the lighting, the openings to the outside and the spectacular aspect of the Krudelspuert (door of the fortress exposed during the contruction of the Wenzel circuit) give this room a very special aura. An atmosphere of intimacy can be felt, no borders separate spectators from the actors or the orators, the first row of seats having been installed on the solid dark wooden planks of the stage.
A basement refreshment counter allows for receptions and brunches. It also offers the possibility of buying drinks during intermission and has a terrace which is open in fine weather offering a view onto the Alzette and onto the walkway of the Wenzel itinerary.
This magnificent auditorium is named today after Robert Krieps, Minister of Justice and Culture, who, as a former deportee imprisoned at the age of 17 in the Grund prison, had the idea and the will to transform this former place of detention and sadness, into a place of culture and exchange.
Arenbergstraat 28 2000 Antwerpen
Not so much a venue as a concept
If I remember correctly, the Cafe Villion events were more like a play reading with an audience.
I was only involved in one unfortunately. There are rumours that NWTC are about to resurect
the Cafe Villion event. Let's hope so.

13, rue du Château, L-3217, Bettembourg
Located in the centre of Bettembourg in the south of Luxembourg the Château de Bettembourg has a history starting in 1733 when it was built as the residence of a farming family. Today it houses the offices and services of the local commune as well as an art gallery and a well equiped theatre.
Power for lighting is not a problem with circuits dedicated for the purpose. The dimmer packs are located in the green room stage right. With 32 channels that can be patched out to 60 locations on-stage and each of the minstrels galleries there is enough flexibility for almost any production.
Lighting is controlled from inside a soundproof booth at the rear of the audience balcony. Not the best but workable.
Beekstraat 172, 1970, Wezembeek-Oppem, Belgium
7 Rue de Treves, L-2632 Findel, Luxembourg
An unusual underground venue. Nice and cosy, seating around 80 people under a popular bar near Luxembourg's airport.
No issues with power in this small venue and there is trussing aplenty. Normally rigged as a nightclub, you will need to be sure not to interfere with the owners own "disco" lighting when rigging. Comfortable though. A nice place to work.
36 rue de Gasperich, L1617, Gasperich, Luxembourg
For many years this was the "go-to" venue for many smaller productions. The caretaker and his family always gave us a friendly welcome and even went on to join us on stage for several productions. The venue has a small, raked stage with a small dressing room stage right. The hall is open and unobstructed with wheelchair access via a side door. Lighting is best controlled from the old projection booth upstairs (Yes, it used to be the local cinema too!) where you will find a 32A power supply and a patch panel leading to the on-stage sockets. 32A power is also available from the kitchenette where there are 3 outlets.
WARNING - One of the kitchenette outlets is dodgy and should not be used. You will find it when you plug in and hear a loud rattle from the fuse box.
36 Boulevard Pierre Dupong, L-1430 Luxembourg
A nicely equiped school auditorium. Featuring a quarter-circle raked stage and a small stock of lighting equipment. Dedicated power supply and enthusiastic students.

Kurhaus, Louisenstraße 58, 61348 Bad Homburg v. d. Höhe
2 rue Général Patton, L-4277 Esch-sur-Alzette
A new school multi-purpose hall. Nice lighting equipment consisting of 4 ETC Source4LED (Direct) profiles, 2 Martin Rush MH5 profiles and 4 Martin MAC101 moving washes. Friendly technician but they do not know how to work the kit they have. Addidng additional equipment to the auditorium truss is forbidden (and if you see it, you'll know why).
157 avenue Pasteur L-2311 Luxembourg
A school multi-purpose hall. No lighting equipment and limited power (1 x 32A stage left).

In 1994, the American Theatre Company, the English Comedy Club and the Irish Theatre Group purchased a complex now known as The Warehouse. It now houses a club room, two rehearsal rooms, a workshop for set construction, a props room, a costume room and storage space for sets.
The groups also bought the adjoining ceramics workshop, which was then transformed into a 65-seat studio theatre. These three community theatre groups also form the Co-operative Association to Support Theatre (CAST), which meets every month to discuss management and maintenance issues.
Since 1994, generous individual and corporate donations of over €250 000 have helped pay for the constant upkeep of the property.
Cosy theatre space with seating forming an "L" shape on two of the walls. Very low ceiling and aging power supply but reasonable well equiped. A nice place to work.
45 rue Ermesinde, L-1469, Limpertsberg, Luxembourg
Reasonably well equiped for small productions. They will, and often have to, hire in any equipment you need. They INSIST that they hire a techie for you and you have to pay. No options!
