Unfortunately, our ever-popular season of social evenings at Drottning Kristina's Jaktslott is on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The list below includes external cultural events in English, some of which offer a discount to British Club members if you book via us. If you know of other upcoming events in English, please contact to have them added to this list.
28 Sept - Feb 2021
Romeo and Juliet (free on YouTube)
Shakespeare's Globe theatre in London has made their 2019 production of Romeo and Juliet available on YouTube.
Packed with love, family feuds and a dose of comedy, this is a full-scale, fast-paced 90 minute performance (with no interval), designed to introduce students and families to Shakespeare.
August (and still available)
Edinburgh International Festival (online)
The festival is this year providing a wide variety of performances (contemporary/traditional/classical music, opera, dance, art installations and theatre) for viewing online. See their programme of online events.
To watch the videos from the comfort of your own home, go to the Edinburgh Festival YouTube channel.
June - July (and still available)
Virtual 'Music in the Park' (free on YouTube)
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Varbergs kommun has not been able to run Music in the Park this summer as they usually do. Instead of cancelling, they have opened up to a wider audience. Welcome to Parkettmusiken: a concert series with a limited number of seats at Varberg's theatre and an infinite number of seats at their live stream. All concerts are available on their YouTube channel from the concert date onwards.
Scroll through the concert videos for a "lucky dip" or see their full and varied concert programme on the Varbergs kommun website (in Swedish)
(Ignore the "Boka biljett" link - that is for actual seats in the theatre. Go to their YouTube channel instead.)
