Culture attracts many visitors to the city

Everything was perfect for the third cultural saturday in herzogenaurach – the weather as well as the activities of the eight participating institutions. Families and groups were out and about in the city throughout the evening to listen in or take part in the activities. Especially the children had a lot of fun. In the city museum, they listened to the readings while sitting on soft cushions. Readers entertained the young and older visitors with stories and bilingual picture book cinema.

The VHS band "you can rock" was heard far and wide, which made its first public appearance in the garden of the folk high school. The audience was enthusiastic about the two performances of the group. Anyone who wants to join in is welcome to do so. This was pointed out by VHS director oliver kundler, who himself took part in the play. Between the performances of the band, scientist gerhard philipp gave a lecture on "higgs particles" and discussed the question: "what is dark energy??"

In the art room, the chairman of the art and culture association, manfred braun, had a moment of happiness right at the beginning of the evening. Four oversized sneakers, which had once adorned the city as works of art, were sold at an auction. The proceeds will be used to rebuild the lighting in the art room. "Art also needs light to be properly presented", braun explained to the visitors. The association also offered a hands-on activity, pictures could be designed by means of glass marbles, each one unique, and prints could also be made.
