Festival will be postponed

Festival will be postponed

It was already to be feared and has now confirmed itself: The Bad Kissingen Festival in August 2020 with the musical “My Fair Lady” have to be postponed. In mid-April, the federal and state governments decided to allow large-scale events to take place until at least 31. August to ban. This has had an impact on numerous events throughout Germany and thus also on the Bad Kissingen Festival, which will be held from 5. until 30. August 2020 for the first time in the Luitpoldbad should take place.

But: The festival will not be cancelled without replacement. The musical “My Fair Lady is to be played at a different time, have Bruno Heynen, head of the event department at Bayer. Staatsbad Bad Kissingen GmbH, and Michael Deuker, managing director of Depro Dienstleistungen GmbH, have now jointly decided. The musical celebrates on Wednesday, 28. July 2021, premiere in the Luitpoldbad. The other ten play dates fall in the period up to the 18. August 2021. The exact dates will be announced as soon as possible.

“For us as organizers, the health and safety of the guests, our actors, singers and staff is our top priority, which is why we are following the recommendation of the authorities. Nevertheless, we are of course very sorry that the first Bad Kissingen Festival cannot take place as planned and has to be postponed. Until then, we thank you for your trust, ask for a little patience and look forward to performing the musical My Fair Lady in August 2021 in the wonderful ambience of the Luitpoldbad.”, says Michael Deuker.

Kleinlangheim community forest in good condition

Kleinlangheim community forest in good condition

After several members of the municipal council and also a building yard employee joined in the new election period, Mayor Gerlinde Stier and the municipal council decided to find out more about the community-owned forest in one of the next meetings. The managing director of the Kitzingen forestry association w.V., Dieter Rammensee, who has a forest maintenance contract with the municipality and manages the area of the hunting bow “Am Damm” for the market Kleinlangheim hunts, took over according to a press release the guidance by the forest.

After the existing hunting leases expired in 2016, he explained how and to whom the areas of the hunting bows were reallocated. The Eigenjagdrevier is divided into three stalking districts. The hunters have precise guidelines for the amount of the shooting numbers. Ramensee’s goal, the release says, is to reduce browsing damage to ensure natural regeneration and forest health. For 2020, the number of firings is 39 and has already been met. The result of the consistent hunting is now already clearly visible in the forest stand.

Natural regeneration is also clearly evident at several sites, Rammensee said, with natural seeding of acorns attributed to the jay, which has also buried seeds of sweet chestnuts. These have already taken off, the press release says. In 2011, targeted acorns were milled in, which are now growing vigorously. In natural regeneration, the critical growth height of 20 centimeters, especially for oaks, has been exceeded in recent years in the area of clearings.

In the event

In the event

About 25 to 30 people, mainly employees of the district office, supplemented by experts who are invited depending on the situation. All positions are double and triple staffed. “In the event of a disaster, after all, we have to be operational 24 hours a day – and maybe for several days at a time,” explains Elena Dietz, head of the Security and Order department.

The fact that the FuGK meets in the district’s own bunker is somehow fitting, but only a coincidence. “The premises are there, why shouldn’t they be used for this?” asks Corinna Petzold, responsible for press and public relations – and as such also part of the management group. In case of emergency, she has to keep in touch with the media and inform the population about necessary measures.

The bunker is a remnant of the Cold War. Still shortly before the fall of the Wall, the approximately 200-square-meter structure was built – with the support of federal funds. In the main room hangs a map of the district. Magnetic cards can be used to mark places of action. What happened where? How many people are injured? Where are the task forces?

Those who do not report until after the deadline are to receive a reduction on the additional payments. The Bundesrat is expected to pass the law on 5. July.
