Programme changes

The Folkwang University of the Arts is an educational institution and many of our events are part of an examination. For this reason it can often happen that performances are cancelled at short notice.

Therefore we specially request our guests from outside to follow the daily press and make use of the information on the Internet. Dates and times of events are given there and updated daily. Information regarding last-minute changes is also available by phone at 0201_4903-231, from a recorded message outside office hours. We appreciate your understanding!
