Local Events

Events at Pulverhaus

Moving into the Pulverhaus as our company headquarters in 2004, we have redefined our corporate culture. In order to deeply ingrain our company location in the region, we began to promote culture, which benefits both our employees and the people of the region. The company headquarters has also established itself as a prestigious venue for events such as the HarzClassixFestival, the Braunlager May Concerts or the cabaret festival of the FoKuS cultural association.

The Pulverhaus offers a unique, authentic backdrop for cultural highlights both inside and outside the building. The cultural events planned for 2020 are listed below.

Corona note

Due to the continuous and dynamically changing course of the corona pandemic, the event planning is already partly a dead letter, and partly there is still a struggle for safety and hygiene concepts to maintain the cultural activities as well as possible. Nevertheless, we display all the events planned for 2020 and also link to the websites of the respective organisers to give an authentic picture of how the organisers are dealing with the situation in particular and how they are fighting and planning for the good cause. The current state of affairs can be found in the brief information at the respective events.

"Origins" - The theme of the year 2020
The Harz Mountains are a pristine landscape. Literally, numerous springs shape the face of this water-rich region, from the well-known origins of the rivers Ilse, Rhume or Bode to countless torrents, seepage or pond springs. The Harz is also one of the most original settlement areas in terms of its human residents; after all, the oldest family trees in the world can be traced here.

"Origins" is therefore the theme of the 15th Braunlager May Concerts, which will be illuminated from different angles in five events, both with regard to the references to the region and, transferred to music.

FoKuS Cabaret

Cancelled  for 2020

The association for the promotion of cultural life in Clausthal-Zellerfeld, FoKuS e.V., was founded in 1992. Every year the FoKuS team puts together a rich program for you.  Enjoy a wide range of music, laugh at cabaret, meet old friends or get to know new artists of the current cabaret scene. This year we welcome a seasoned cabaret artist, who as a keen observer and master of black humour confronts us with our weaknesses as do-gooders.

Classic in the class room

Cancelled for 2020 | Will be continued in 2021

For many years now we have been supporting the International Music Festival in Goslar with the series “Classic in the class room” in the area surrounding Clausthal. Interested school classes get the opportunity to experience educationally well prepared artist performances in our Pulverhaus. The young artists deliver the message that music is a language spoken by all people. This way the young audience gets introduced to classical music.
