All announcements are subject to Corona conditions and short-term changes

Update, September 2020:

  • The Clubroom will be restricted in numbers; distancing is required.
  • The theatre we had booked has been postponed to next year.
  • We therefore recommend that you book during the week before each Clubroom event (by phone or email to Susan) or be prepared to be turned away (sadly) if you come without reserving and we are already fully booked. Please cancel if you have reserved and find later that you cannot come.
  • We must provide to the VHS an exact room plan of each meeting with names, addresses, phone numbers and seating positions of all visitors. (Do not move the chairs.)
  • Therefore please arrive by 17:25 at the latest, as we must record any missing details and the seating positions.
  • We will disinfect the chairs and tables before the events.
  • Please wear a face mask whenever you are not seated, keep your distance (1.5m / 5') and follow the general VHS Corona rules displayed in the building.
  • Please keep your coat or jacket with you at your seat. The wardrobe must not be used.
  • Bring your own drinking water if you need it.

Please stay tuned and check here for new information.

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.
