A weekend of fun for everyone at the station

This weekend (7th-9th August, 2015) sees an unusual and exciting event take place at Oberursel’s station.  As part of the Orscheler Sommer events, local residents, clubs and companies have got together to organise a weekend to “play and get to know each other”.

Already, three lorry loads of sand have been delivered to make a temporary sand pit for children to play in.

The fun starts on Friday with sand castle building from 10am.  In the afternoon from 3pm onwards there will be boule, coffee and cakes, and music.  The Eastend Jazzband start at 3pm, followed by Stormin’ Norman at 4.30pm.

At 5.30pm there will be Irish folk, rock, blues and punk with Marleen, Hardy, Tobi, Andy, Bryan and the Oberursel Shanty-Choir, with the celtic band “Flahulach” playing “Traditional Music from the Windy Northwest” at 8.30pm.

The evening finishes with Irish folk unplugged around the campfire at 11pm.

Saturday starts at 10am with games in the sand, boule, darts, yoga, chess, and a lot more.

Birds of prey will be on show at 12 noon, the Greek community will be dancing at 1pm, and Angela Behrs will be story telling starting a 2.14pm.

The music will be from the “Toms & Jerries” starting at 3pm, with Detlef Neuls and Marleen Hartung following at 4.30pm.

“Long tall Erwin & friends” will take the stage at 5.30pm, followed by “Duett Komplett” at 8pm.

At 10.45pm the film “Zaina – Königin der Pferde” will be shown.

On Sunday breakfast “Frühschoppen” will be at 10am, with the last chance to play in the sand before the event comes to a close at 7.30pm.

The birds of prey and Angela Behrs will also be there, with music provided by the African drummers “ImPuls” at 1pm, Ukrainien Folklore music at 3.30pm and Caribbean sounds at 5pm.

Entry – including the film and concerts – is free.  Cold drinks and food will be available, but anyone who wants to bring their own to put on the barbeque is welcome to do so.  Cake and salad donations are welcome.

Parents should note that they remain responsible for their children at all times.
