Ein Kessel Buntes on 21 May 2022

The state funding programme "RKP - Regionales Kultur Programm NRW" is 25 years old - this has to be celebrated properly! To mark this anniversary, the Münsterland e.V. Cultural Office invites all interested parties to the cultural festival "Ein Kessel Buntes" on 21 May 2022.

Even the journey from Münsterland is peppered with cultural appetisers! On the four so-called "star rallys" from the four Münsterland districts, guests will approach the Mühlenhof by various means of transport: bicycle, horse, bus or on foot. The anniversary celebration begins at 6 pm on the grounds of the Mühlenhof open-air museum. Here the cultural diversity of the region is presented as a colourful fair of music, dance, film art, children's theatre and performances.

Cultural potpourri for the festival

The Münsterland cultural region is colourful! The guests should experience this for themselves, which is why a large number of artists will be involved in the event. Visitors can look forward to music by UniJAZZity, Mazen Mohsen & Band (Heimat X), Folks Music (Wald und Wiesen Konzerte), Brass Quintet (Neue Sterne für das Münsterland). In the Mühlenhaus there will be films with Anja Kreysing & Helmut Buntjer (Geschichten aus dem Nebel) and Haus Kummerveldt to see and hear. Stefan Demming will be present with an exhibition in the fire station and an installation (Luurn bi de Buern). There will also be a surprising performance by Scheibe & Güntzel, the dance duo Madona Shaqiri and Endrit Teco (Heimat X) and small magic pieces by magician Michael Sondermeyer (SteverLandRoute) on the grounds. The Illustre Runde will be out and about on the grounds and will also give visitors the opportunity to pick up a pen themselves. There will also be a paste-up on one of the historical buildings(Paste Up History!). Children aged six to twelve can look forward to a special children's programme: the MNEME kollektiv will delight them with dance and a workshop, the Krokodil Theater with its children's theatre and Soundseeing with a handicraft workshop.

In addition, there will be a culinary offer, including picnic boxes from Picknick³.
