Englisch Stammtisch im Corner/Mühlenstraße

The English Stammtisch Bielefeld was founded in the 1970s by a lecturer from the Pädagogische Hochschule Bielefeld, the forerunner of the University Bielefeld. Initially the Stammtisch was an informal meeting place for staff and students. The circle soon expanded as everybody interested in speaking English was invited to join in.

As an informal group, there are no membership fees or other regulations. We only meet to enjoy talking English. Conversational English proficiency is the only requirement to take part. Both native and non-native speakers are welcome. However, fun, not perfection, is the aim.

In the forty or so years since the Stammtisch was established, it has been visited by people from all over the world. Students and visiting lecturers from India, China, Japan, Australia, the USA and many other countries have joined us during their time in Germany. Today, not only university students and staff meet at the Stammtisch, but people of all ages and professions.

For at least the last thirty years the Stammtisch used to meet in the quiet fin-de-siècle ambience of Augustus (August-Bebel-Straße 47 on the corner of Heinrichstraße).  As Augustus closed at the end of 2012 we started looking for a new location. 

 

From Friday 5th of July 2013 (till further notice)  you can find us at Queer´s, Neumarkt 1. Stammtisch still meets Friday evenings from 8 pm. This includes holiday times as well. Stammtisch does not close.

As Queers has closed down permanently, Stammtisch has moved again. Our new base is LITERATUR CAFE, Neumarkt 1, Bielefeld. So from May 1st, 2016 we will meet at LITERATUR CAFE which opposite the former Queer's - you cannot miss it.

 

Attention!!!!! NEW PLACE

 

A NEW PLACE again! Stammtisch is on the move again. From June 1st 2016 we are at CORNER, formerly known as Tangente and later Chamäleon.

Dracula Reloaded

Dear theatre enthusiasts,

On 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, and 25 July, 2015 at 8 p.m. the English Drama Group invites you to come and seour new production Dracula, adapted by William McNulty. We will perform in Hörsaal 7, Bielefeld University. Admission is free.

"The journal of Dr. Thomas M. Seward. Entry recorded this 21st day of March, 1898. Since my last entry six weeks ago, I have seen the love of my life, Lucy Westphal, languish and die of a malady I could neither remedy nor indeed diagnose. As if this were not a full enough portion of grief for any man to bear, I have subsequently been forced to witness those same symptoms developing in my dear friend, Mina Grant, and have been equally powerless to prevent her decline."

Culminating in a wild and shocking confrontation between the King of Vampires and those who would rid the world of him, this adaptation is an action-packed, blood-soaked retelling of Bram Stoker's classic tale of horror.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!



If you feel like talking about the play or brushing up you English, why don't you join us at English Stammtisch (Queer's - Neumarkt).


Looking forward to seeing you there.
