Things to do

HAPPENINGS IN DÜSSELDORF

Many events pop up and disappear with little or no advertising. Some activities are small or unique. Such happenings are posted in this calendar. A  source of possible surprise and discovery.

Something special takes place throughout the year in Düsseldorf. Besides established events and exhibitions, smaller occasions can vary from a concert, theatre performance, vernissage, celebration, opening, anniversary, a spontaneous market or a small one off activity. 

Choose from expat meet ups and other happenings, some of which take place with surprisingly little publicity, yet well-informed local nationals attend. Members of the expat community of Düsseldorf and surroundings can enjoy these gatherings too.

The calendar below offers expats a quick, easy and simple way to discover current activities all on one page.

Blithe Spirit by Noël CowardBlithe Spirit by Noël CowardTime: 19:30
Two women, one dead, the other very much alive, want the same man – their husband. It all starts with a spiritistic séance... English language theatre from Orange Planet Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, wishes to learn about the occult for a new book he is writing. He invites the equally sceptical Dr and Mrs. Bradman and arranges for an eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house. During the séance, Madame Arcati inadvertently summons Charles’ deceased first wife Elvira. Only seen and heard by Charles, Elvira immediately sets out to disrupt Charles’ marriage to his current wife Ruth... And so the “play” begins... Black humour with unexpected twists and turns... Famous English playwright Noël Coward at his best!
