Kannusali and Nekka
In Kannusali and Nekka, you can enjoy theatre and circus performances, KannuKino films, events and everything in between! The versatile premises are located in the heart of the Espoo Centre district in a unique underground civil defence shelter in the immediate vicinity of the train station.
In addition to providing a venue for experiencing culture, Kannusali and Nekka serve as easily accessible meeting places and recreational locations. The premises are rented for an affordable price to professionals, hobby groups and municipal residents for organising a variety of activities and events.
Kannusali will be under construction from summer 2019 and will be opened again at the beginning of 2020. Sports premises are open normally.
The premises are not fully accessible. Kannusali and Nekka are located in a bomb shelter with a long and steep ramp, which is why we recommend that persons who use a wheelchair should have an assistant. The personnel will also assist if needed. You can reach us on 050 368 7931. The auditorium is equipped with an audio induction loop. Some Finnish films have subtitles for the hard of hearing. If the film has subtitles, this is mentioned in the event announcement.
