Two cultures,

connected in Paderborn!

Welcome to Anglo-German Club Paderborn

Since its establishment in 1965, the Anglo-German Club Paderborn has been a close link between British and German culture in Paderborn. The Club has a special liaison with Bolton, Paderborn’s twin town in Great Britain and, of course, with the members of the British Forces, who are stationed in Paderborn. With their families, the Club comprises of about 300 members; approximately a third of them are British nationals. The Club aspires to remain a platform in the future for exchanges between Germans and Britons - irrespective of political and military decisions. Our meetings are bi-lingual. If you are interested, you are very welcome to attend one of the forthcoming events. We look forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely
For the Committee

Angie Reeh

Virtual art tour “Disney’s Roots in European Art”

Virtual tour by the art historian Pascal Heß, Städel Frankfurt

What the tour is about: Kitsch or art? The rating of the great Disney films is disparate. Nevertheless, the classics have become part of our collective memory. This art tour shows why: Disney’s imagery is surprisingly deeply rooted in European art and romanticism. The tour deciphers the visual worlds of Disney in a pleasant way and finds out where Pinocchio really lived.
