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.

Charity
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!

Schedule
This is the current schedule of the Winterfair.

Workshops
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.

Performances
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!

Activities
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!

General
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 board@apollo.utwente.nl. Can’t be there, but still want to donate? You can donate here: https://www.ing.nl/particulier/betaalverzoek/index.html?trxid=qvY75rBnzOPl5vOwwuoQBzo8qlg0GyHz

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.

The Gala!

Finally time for the gala! Together with all of you we will be going to space for an entire evening!

AT half past nine, the live band will start, and we will all dance the opening dance together on the song that matches our theme perfectly. You can buy your tickets in our shop on the website, and then pick them up at the Apollo room. We can’t wait!

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

[Lustrum] Lasergaming – Cancelled

The Vrijhof will transform into an epic arena and you are challenged to defeat the Titans during the fight. Will you take up the challenge? The battle of the century was planned for Saturday 22 January, but due to the corona regulations, the activity is postponed. We will let you know when you can take on the Giants in the Theatre halls of the Vrijhof. We will be starting our battle at 15:00.

You are requested to sign up on our website for the laser game activity. The tickets are €2,50 and are sold in the Apollo webshop! We will try to reschedule the activity. If it will be cancelled or you cannot attend the new date, you will be fully refunded. You can take up contact with lustrum@apollo.utwente.nl for any questions or if you want to get refunded.

Apollo Winter Fair 2021

On Saturday 18 December Apollo will host the Winter Fair. During this day, we want to offer warmth and comfort in the cold winter days by offering a number of cosy activities in the Vrijhof. From felting and crocheting in the Audiozaal to movies in the Amphitheater and Just Dance in Agora. Next to that, there will be a musical appearance of Musilon in the foyer. The Winter Fair will take place from 13:00-17:00.

To secure your spot at the workshop, get your tickets in our webshop! During the crocheting workshop, we will be making an adorable winter hat. Don’t you know how to crochet yet? No worries, we will be explaining everything during the workshop. And the best thing is that you can keep your creation afterwards! Next to crocheting, there is also a needle felting workshop, where you will be making the cutest penguins.

Not only is it nice to get together during these cold and dark times, but we will also be raising money for a good cause. This years’ charity will be “Jeugdfonds Sport & Cultuur Enschede” a fund providing children from fewer income families to participate in sports and culture. All the money made on the drink sales during the Winter Fair will be going to the charity.

Crochet Workshop – €5,00

Needle felting Workshop – €2,50
