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. And we have found one: Nordpol / Mühlenstraße /Bielefeld.
Please join English Stammtisch.
Be seeing you there.
the English Drama Group presents a couple of One Act Plays. Perhaps there is something for you.
By the way, Stammtisch is back at Nordpol - why don't you come and see us sometime. Below there are two posters attached. Please scroll.
Hi my fishy friends,
regrettably, there is no fish on Saturday - hope you still feel like coming even if there is no brain food on the menue.
Let's dig into the burgers.
Be seeing you

Hi fishy friends,
it is 2019 and we have kept calm and will carry on the 1st Saturday of the month tradition.
So, who is interested in meeting at Lord Nelson's at 123 Detmolder Strasse? And who would like some f & c? We need to know about the fish till Jan 3rd as we need to tell the landlady in advance whether she needs to prepare 5 or more fishy delights.You can either write to English Stammtisch or https://nebenan.de/public feed/5830727
Be seeing you from about 7.30 onwards
Dear Stammtisch friends,
Nordpol is closed on the above mentioned dates - if any member knows of a place where we can meet instead on those days - please drop us a line and we will publish place and time.
Till then a Very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year
or as Dave Allen used to say: May Your God go with you.
Be seeing you at Stammtisch
