Welcome to Kroa i Bø – the student club-house in Bø in Telemark! We are proud to be one of the most respected and appreciated rock clubs in Norway, all the way back to 1971. We are sited in the countryside of Telemark County, away from the biggest cities, where we can offer professionalism, excellent facilities and an enthusiastic audience.
Kroa is the natural meeting-point for the students at Telemark University College in Bø, and every week there are several regular and random happenings to please all kinds of interests. Kroa organizes large concerts, theme parties and a spectacular Students Week, and also smaller rock concerts, club nights and stage performances. At Kroa, traditions are important to the daily management; we highly value our long and successful history. We believe that maintaining traditions and building on experience combined with an up-to-date and innovative spirit together guarantees our success. All of our arrangements are open to both students and local residents, no matter where youre from or what you do.
Voluntary work Kroa in Bø is run almost exclusively by students and locals working in their free time. More than 100 eager and engaged young people collaborate to create the Kroa-experience: the working environment is unique. Once every month there is a house-party exclusively for people working at Kroa; one of many other benefits you get for donating your time, including cheaper prices in the bar. If you want to know more about beeing a volenteer you can read the Big Book of Kroa here.
