Preserving the English Theatre at Its Current Location

The English-speaking theater at Willy-Brandt-Platz is a valuable addition to the city and the region. However, its continued existence is threatened by a change in ownership.

For several months, the Volt faction in the Römer has been monitoring the negotiations between the English Theatre and the new owner of the venue “Capitaland.” While a cultural use for the premises is required, the lease has not yet been extended.

“The English Theatre Frankfurt offers a unique and high-quality program, particularly for an international audience and students in the region,” says Britta Wollkopf, spokesperson on cultural-policy for the faction.

Therefore, the faction supports the theater’s petition, which has already been signed by over 12,000 people, and encourages everyone to participate:

Volt Frankfurt: the political party

Volt Frankfurt is part of Volt Europe, the first party that is the same all over Europe. In Frankfurt, at the heart of Europe, we fight for a progressive, sustainable and united EU. We work according to the motto: Think global, act local.

Nearly one million people live and work in Frankfurt. The challanges we face are shared with over 100 Million people in metropolies all over europe. Volt stands for the urban living of tomorrow, using progressive and pragmatic solutions. 

We want to implement concepts that were already proven successful in other european cities. Be it lowering rents like Vienna, cycling like in Copenhagen or digital gouvernment services like Estland: we want to solve Problems, instead of just pushing them to the next election cycle.
