Henry V (Shakespeare)

Directed by Max Webster (Life of Pi), this exciting production, captured live at the Donmar Warehouse, explores what it means to be English and our relationship to Europe, asking: do we ever get the leaders we deserve?

British Summer Concert

Tjolöholms Slott

In a beautiful castle setting, this summer concert will be a grand tribute to some of Britain's greatest artists, such as Adele, Ed Sheeran, the Beatles, Coldplay, David Bowie, Eurythmics and more.

The artists Åsa and Ulf Nomark from Kungsbacka will again take over Magasinet at Tjolöholms Slott, together with a large choir, and offer a musical experience beyond the ordinary where you can both listen and enjoy, and even sing along to, some of the most famous and beloved hits from the UK. This is a concert full of energy, which last time drew a full house.

In the almost cathedral-like hall, the audience sits under a roof and when the large doors open, it is as if Tjolöholm's magical surroundings become one with the concert hall.
