The picturesque town on the Ems offers a surprisingly large programme of events. The pilgrimages are among the highlights of the year. The carriage pilgrimage in particular attracts countless visitors to Telgte. No less popular are the market of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary or the street theatre days. A colourful programme of concerts, cabaret and theatre takes place in the community centre. Just take a look at our calendar of events.

The duo Sinfonia de Carnaval promises instrumental art-pop that knows no boundaries: elements of jazz and pop meet electronic sounds and the full sound spectrum of classical playing techniques. The audience at the Münsterland Festival at the RELíGIO in Telgte will experience the result.
With their new programme "Sweeping Dragon", the multi-award-winning duo takes their audience into the world of storytelling. With brilliant sound stories from trombone, violoncello, vocals and accordion, they create sometimes fantasy worlds, sometimes tangible sound experiences. Anna Lang and Alois Eberl capture experiences, dreams and fantasies in sound with impressive instrumental technique and creativity. The musical portraits, narratives and sounding snapshots find their musical expression in merciless grooves, brute drama, wide fields of improvisation and surprising spontaneity.
Wilfried Schmickler is one of the great political cabaret artists of this country. On 30 October he will present his new programme "It doesn't stop" at the Bürgerhaus. There are still tickets available at www.reservix.de.
Wilfried Schmickler has been awarded the four most important cabaret prizes: Prix Pantheon, German Cabaret Prize, German Cabaret Prize and Salzburger Stier. He was on the WDR-Mitternachtsspitzen ("Stop Mr Becker") for almost 30 years and every Monday at just before 11 he asks the "Monday Question" on WDR 2.
Schmickler has a mastery of language like hardly any other cabaret artist. He can formulate sharply, but at the same time be poetic. At the same time, he is always highly topical and quite wicked.
His new programme is called "It doesn't stop". The reason for this title: It doesn't stop with the fight against idiocy and injustice in this world, against social inequality, against hatred and intolerance. But Schmickler's desire to do something to counter this doesn't stop either.
And so he travels again across the stages of this republic, armed with the words of truth, which he knows how to wield mercilessly and razor-sharp like an executioner wields his axe.

TV viewers know Bernhard Hoëcker mainly from the guessing formats "Genial daneben" and "Wer weiß denn sowas?", now the guessing fox is touring Germany's stages with his sixth live solo programme. Tickets are still available at www.reservix.de.
The comedian will once again look after the well-being of humanity and make it easier for it to ascend via his mental stepladder. In doing so, he asks many questions: How are things in life actually to be seen correctly? Is there a right at all, or is there almost only a wrong? What is it all about anyway? Sustainable, vegan or speechless? What about autonomous driving? Is everything being done right or a little bit wrong? Or is someone getting it really wrong and the philanthropists are creeped out? Why is our language falling into disrepair?
Autopilot Bernhard Hoëcker tackles all these problems before bothering his audience with them, thrilling them and sending them into free fall. One thing is certain: the key influencer from the ranks of comedy personnel is armed with knowledge and insight. Bernhard Hoëcker puts facts on all the touchstones and marinates, twists, dissects and turns them on his mental grill. Only then is the meal served.
Advance booking: 23.00 euros / 21.50 euros; box office: 25.00 euros / 23.50 euros
Eva Eiselt is an actress and cabaret artist. In her latest programme "Wenn Schubladen denken könnten" (If drawers could think), she slips into different roles and puts revealing and funny comments into the mouths of her characters. Tickets are available at www.reservix.de.
Eva Eiselt thinks: It's time for Open Drawer Day. And so in her programme she will clean out, air out and release the things of life into freedom.
In the description of her programme she says: "As a rule, we make ourselves quite comfortable in life. Everything has to be in its place. Keys? On the shelf! Charger cable? Somewhere. Reading glasses? Never seen. Car? Probably in the garage. Or got rid of it. Partner? Probably in the garage. Or abolished."
Life is a huge wall of cupboards, Eiselt says, and anyone who thinks in pigeonholes quickly has a board in front of their head.
Eva Eiselt changes roles on stage again and again. A seemingly dim Jessica mutates into a philosopher, pensioner Udo of all people becomes a gender expert and a woman from Baden discovers "wirrtual" possibilities. In 2020, Eva Eiselt was awarded the St. Ingberter Pfanne cabaret prize.
The author presents his new book "Alltagsheld" - short stories at their best.
Christian Nachtigäller tells of his bizarre encounters with the mystery of "everyday life" in an easy-going tone, sometimes laconic, sometimes humorous, sometimes even nasty, but always with a wink. Well-equipped with a witty manner and some ingenuity, he faces up to quite normal madness and masters the most incredible adventures. Whether it's train journeys, first dates, a bike ride with friends or the rural shooting festival: the "everyday hero" Nachtigäller stumbles into grotesque situations time and again and knows how to cleverly extricate himself from them. He is a master of the spontaneous, the humorous and the absurd. A true "everyday hero"!
It is not the great and epic heroic stories that are told, but the typical situations that can happen to anyone at any time. A visit to the relatives can escalate and a cosy evening for two in an Italian restaurant can become an appreciated hotspot for the needy.

The German-born, Argentinian musician Norbert Fimpel first stood on stage as a professional musician in Buenos Aires in 1990.
That evening it became clear to him what he intended to do for the rest of his life: turn his passion into a profession. And so it began: for 10 years he accompanied the very famous Argentine singer, pianist and composer Alejandro Lerner on several South American tours.
In December 1998, he met Roger Hodgson (Supertramp) in Buenos Aires and accompanied him on several tours, as well as Joe Cocker, whom he accompanied on more than 550 concerts in 5 continents from 2005 until his death in 2014. And so, 30 years later, we welcome Norbert as a guest in Telgte.
Joining him on stage are singer Noelia Tomassi and pianist Daniel Roth
:Noelia Tomassi was born in Buenos Aires in 1984 and began her vocal training at the age of 7. She sings all styles from black music to soul and blues to French chansons and bossa nova. The singer is also in great demand in the European jazz scene and now lives alternately in Berlin and Palestine.
The pianist Daniel Roth grew up in New York during the strong era of folk and blues, playing there at a very young age with Muddy Waters, Gary Davis and Howling Wolf. He studied at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston. Since 1987 he has lived in Spain, where he teaches music in Barcelona and Palma.
Roth and Fimpel have known each other for years from countless sessions all over Europe. Both love the atmosphere of clubs and the direct contact with the audience.
Norbert Fimpel & Co. will entertain us with first-class funk, soul, R&B and ballads. Well-known songs and their own compositions are part of the repertoire that you will enjoy this evening.

Christmas is supposed to be merry.... and contemplative. But above all, beautiful. And precisely because we want that so much, we stress ourselves - "Oh" - to the point of senselessness, experience stress, shopping mania and get together for the traditional family quarrel.
René Steinberg says: Put an end to it! The motto of his new Christmas programme: "make Christmas great again". And the way to do that is through laughter. Laughing about ourselves, our quirks, habits (how do you eat a domino?), about fellow human beings who definitely don't celebrate the festival of love in the supermarket car park or about supposedly small lights who perhaps illuminate their windows Las Vegas-like for that very reason?
Let's laugh about it - especially together with other people - because, as usual, Steinberg interacts a lot with his audience; so that you can experience a nice evening together even before the festival.
Perhaps a bit like the shepherds once did, for to them the angel did not announce payback points, but above all: great joy! So, back to the merry roots of Christmas; get your tickets, relax and then: "Let's be merry and bright!

Michael Sens' programme attacks all our senses again. The versatile cabaret artist celebrates with you an "UNERHÖRT" horny 250th birthday party with Ludwig van Beethoven.
"UNHEARD BEETHOVEN". With this title Michael Sens honours one of the greatest composers of our time. "UNERHÖRT" what a genius was born 250 years ago in Bonn, "UNERHÖRT" versatile his work and activities. A "UNHEARD" fantastic pianist and composer. And "UNHEARD" how posterity helped itself to him.
The birthday party gives contemporary witnesses of Beethoven the opportunity to give the master an "UNHEARD" birthday serenade. This historical meeting between Sens and Beethoven in public gives Michael Sens space to spread his imaginative wings, woven with creativity, into the darkest and most numb corners of the hall of humour.
With sensual, irresistibly profound humour, musical virtuosity on piano, violin and guitar, remarkable vocal performances of all musical styles and incredible art of word mastery, he not only surprises the senses of his audience, but also brings the great master back to life and gives him the opportunity to think, speak, laugh and - most importantly for the composer - hear well again.
"UNERHÖRT BEETHOVEN" will undoubtedly offer the audience fine pearls of humour, covering a wide spectrum of art, grotesque, nonsensical and contra versions. Describing a perfect parallel between then and now, how art and politics are connected and explaining the difference between brainwashing and handwashing, the federal cabaret master will weave all this into a festive evening
