After extensive renovation: Gummersbacher Hall 32 is ready for a new start

After the holidays it should start again. And the Gummersbacher Hall 32 is well prepared for the “New Start of Culture”. The funding program of the same name was used for technical upgrading.

Around 63,000 euros were invested in the event center. Several devices for air purification have been purchased in the seminar rooms. In the hall, additional counter elements now allow the catering to be rectified with the appropriate spacing.

Remote controlled cameras for live streams

Remote-controlled cameras and a console for video editing allow events to be recorded and streamed. In addition, events can be broadcast externally with the help of a projector. The event-free time was used to install the new technology and carry out appropriate training for the staff, reports the event center.

Overall, Hall 32 is now much better positioned to face future pandemic-related challenges, according to a press release. The “Restart Culture” program was launched by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media in order to maintain cultural establishments.

The devices purchased through the program in Hall 32 each have a sticker with the logo of the campaign. The funding amount was around 58,000 euros. The city’s cultural operations made a contribution of around 5,000 euros.

New start with guitarist Christina Lux

In the meantime, Hall 32 has announced the program for the restart in September. At the season opening on Saturday, September 4th, 8 p.m., the singer and guitarist Christina Lux will once again be a guest. Three years ago, her album “Leise Bilder”, which she wrote and produced together with her long-time companion Oliver George, was awarded the German Record Critics’ Prize.

On Thursday, September 9th and Saturday, September 11th, at 8 pm, “Socks in the fridge – the dementical” can be seen again. The production by the Oberberg musical studio was written in and for Hall 32 and tells of progressive dementia with a pinch of humor.
