About us

The English Speakers' Circle was formed in the early 1960s and has always been part of ‘die Brücke’, the International Education Centre, which today includes over 25 international clubs and societies closely linked to the Volkshochschule for Adult education.

Our main activities are talks in English on topics of general interest, often by native speakers. We organize occasional English theatre performances and special events such as a summer outing.

Meetings

Our normal meetings are on Saturdays at 17:30h every two, three or four weeks during the VHS terms in the 3rd floor Club Room (room no. 306) at Kasernenstraße 6, 40213 Düsseldorf, near the underground station Heinrich-Heine-Allee.

Prior registration for the normal club meetings is NOT necessary. A small fee is charged for non-members.

Theatre evenings

Our theatre performances are normally at the 'Weiterbildungszentrum', the VHS building in Bertha-von-Suttner-Platz immediately behind the mainline station and are on a weekday evening, often Friday. Advanced purchase of numbered seats is possible for these performances at our meetings (or phone Susan).

Membership

Membership of the Circle is for a calendar year; this gives free entry to meetings in the club room and reductions on our arranged theatre performances and some special events.
