This is the program for Marienthal Evenings 2022

Culture challenges the corona virus again
This is the program for Marienthal evenings

Marienthal Evenings take place for the 39th time. After two years with corona restrictions, visitors can expect a varied program and a new scenic environment. An overview of performances.

Preparations have been made for the 39th Marienthal Evenings. On Wednesday, the board of directors of Kulturkreis Marienthal combined a look back at the last two years, which were shaped by the corona pandemic, with a preview of the new program.

Mayor Theo Büning described the year of Corona 2020 as particularly difficult. Much had to be changed during the process, some artists were canceled and the number of visitors had to be reduced by more than half compared to normal years. According to managing director Karl-Heinz Elmer, this led to a deficit of 10,000 euros in revenue. In the second year of Korona, the culture group was able to act on the experiences of the first year, in order to achieve almost normalcy.

Even without the lack of financial support from the city of Hamminkeln, Kulturkreis Marienthal was able to compensate for the lack of revenue from ticket sales by contributing financially from 14 companies in the region. There was much praise from Theo Büning for the Marienthaler Bürgerverein, who took up service in both years with his mobile “Marthas” when it was no longer possible to serve guests in central locations.

The stage ambience and outdoor seating have been redesigned. The two master gardeners Sven Neu and Sandra Hülsmann received many praises for this from the Kulturkreis board on Wednesday. Two mounds have been created and planted with 20,000 environmentally friendly perennials that provide habitat for insects and bees. Another insect hotel is planned.

This year too, only the stage for artists will be covered. Spectators sit outside. Events also occur when it rains, because if necessary, rain hoods are provided. However, the vast majority of visitors so far have brought with them from home the necessary protection from the rain.

Artists for this year’s program could not be recruited this year at the Freiburg artists exchange because it was canceled. “We have had good relations with artists for many years,” said Karl-Heinz Elmer as the main reason for the successful design of the program. In addition, individual groups would have reported themselves.

Between the opening event on June 21 and August 24, visitors can expect a sophisticated collection of cultural contributions. Visitors no longer have to book seats themselves. You will be informed of your seats when you receive your tickets and will be assigned to you on the spot.
