Virtual Slottsskogen treasure hunt

Slottskogen

The Anglo-Swedish Society has organised a summer treasure hunt for all the family, but this time the questions are available online, so you can take them with you to the park to search for the answers when it suits you. Or, if you are staying at home, you can compete using your memory or online search skills. (Not all of the questions can be answered by going to the park but all of the answers can be found on the internet.)

Here are the questions. Please send your answers to to find out your score.

 

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.)

The following concert features music from the British Isles:

Sláinte. This Scottish-Swedish duo offers swinging Irish, Scottish and American folk music, pop songs from the 1950s, country and more.
