Apollo Gala 2023

With every upcoming new year a massive elegant ball is organised where all of us from the cultural sector come together to showcase our love for culture in style. And this year we will celebrate culture with what Twente relates the most to culture: DRINKING & FARMERS, but of course, we’ll keep it FANCY. 🤵👸

On Friday, May 12th we welcome you as FANCY FARMERS in Rico Latino. Any lover of culture, be it active within a cultural association or not can join our Gala.

Become a Do-Group Parent

Dear culture enthusiasts!

We have some spots for culture do-groups that the associations aren’t able to fully fill, so we thought it would be cool to make some do-groups across culture associations! Do you wanna adopt some kiddo’s, or just join as a side-parent and show them what Culture has to offer! Relive your own Kick-In and sign up as a parent now!

We’re most likely to get a do-group at Computer Science and/or Industrial Design, so if you’re in one of those studies, please consider signing up! People from other studies are also very welcome, the help show all the new people the what it’s like to be a UT student.

The deadline for signing up is April 25th!

Apollo WinterFair

On Saturday the 28th of January Apollo will host the annual Winter Fair again! During this day, everyone is welcome to enjoy the coziness of winter with fun activities, workshops and performances. It takes place between 14:00 – 20:00 in the Vrijhof. You can choose to stay the entire day, or just pop in and out for a quick workshop.

During the WinterFair, the goal is to raise money for a charity. This year’s charity will be “Jeugdfonds Sport & Cultuur Enschede”. This fund provides children from fewer income families to participate in sports and culture. The money raised during the Winter Fair will be donated by Apollo to this charity. So make sure to come by to show your support! However, we still made sure to keep all prices affordable (with the option to donate more) and also have activities you can join for free!

This is the current schedule of the Winterfair.

We have fun workshops you can join, like an improvisation theatre workshop by Pro Deo, a street dance workshop by Yoshua (from Break-Even) and a regular theatre workshop by NEST. These workshops will last around an hour, you can join a workshop for just €3, which will entirely go to charity! You can (but don’t have to) sign up using the following LINK. This will help us estimate how many people will be joining the activities.

We will have a choir performance by Musilon, where they will sing some nice Christmas carols, because it’s never too late to enjoy some Christmas spirit. Furthermore, UTMost will give a concert with their jazzcombo. Performances will last about half an hour, and will cost only €1.50 to watch, which will go to charity!

There are also various activities you can do throughout the day, like watching a movie on a big screen, doing some fun karaoke, or playing Just Dance! Most of these activities you can join for free, so make sure to stop by!

Next to these, you can also of course just have a fun time and hang out the whole day, play some board games in the Apollo room, and enjoy some nice drinks and snacks!

Want to help?
Help us raise money, by offering your own workshop or performance, or sell something to raise money for charity! In most cases, we can even offer you some compensation! (This is paid by Apollo, so all the money you raise will go entirely to charity.) If you are interested, reach out to us at Can’t be there, but still want to donate? You can donate here:

We hope to see you there!

Open Stage

Show your talents during the Apollo Open Stage 2023!

On Friday the 17th of February, 20:00, the Apollo open stage will take place!

During this evening, students can show their talents on the stage in the Agora, in the Vrijhof. All types of acts are welcome. If you have a great idea that is not one of the options, please let the committee know as well, and we can see what is possible.

Sign-ups are open from Monday 21st of November until Monday the 19th of December. The committee will need to have all the additional information for your act before the 1st of January. Additional information can be music files, special requests, changes in your act, etc.

In order to promote the open stage and decorate the Agora, every act has to send in a poster (in pdf format) before the 1st of January. This could be a graphic design, a picture or a visual representation of anything related to your act. Make sure the name of your act is on it.

With everything that is happening in Ukraine, we would like to remind everyone that you can help!
In Enschede, you can donate items that are in short supply in Ukraine. Or, if you prefer, you can also make a financial donation.

Apollo Dance Show 2022 – Metamorphoses

Once upon a time… Apollo used to organize a Dance Show. It has been almost 2 years, but we are very happy to announce that on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 March 2022 Apollo will be organizing another dance show.

Egyptian stick dance

The ancient martial arts Tahtib, formerly only accessible to men, and Raqs al Assaya, danced by bellydancers, have something in common. In this workshop you’ll discover it through dance!

The choreography is based on the story of Hermaphroditus, a character from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

Come join the workshop on the 19th of February at the Audiozaal in the Vrijhof
