When dusk is falling we light candles and invite you to a calm and restful time surrounded by Medieval ruins in the peaceful glass cathedral. There will be storytelling, singing and music to help you lower your shoulders in a hasty pre-Christmas period, and hopefully you will get the good Christmas feeling.
This event has been a tradition for a couple of years now, and this year we are happy to announce that we increase it to a historical Christmas concert with several of our singing and playing guides performing Medieval Christmas tunes and other traditional music for the Holidays.
This event takes place at 4:30 pm the same Saturdays and Sundays that the Christmas Shop is open. NB! Not December 19th as there is another concert in the glass cathedral that day.
Tickets can be bought in the Museum Shop earlier the same day or online in advance.
Lussi is an evil fairy from Norwegian tradition. In this musical performed by local children and youths you get to know more about the traditions and what people used to believe in the old days, like why it was important not to perform any work with circular movements the day of winter solstice, or what could happen to those who did not mark their doors and cattle with a cross. The play is in Norwegian, but with lots of nice songs and music, so this can be a good experience even if you do not know the Norwegian language all too well.
The musical is played on December 5th at 4:00 pm and on December 6th at 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm.
Due to the Covid-19 there is a restricted number of tickets in 2020, please order yours online to make sure you get a seat.
There are several concerts coming up in December:
Sunday December 13th at 5:30 pm:Christiania Mannskor is a male choir inviting you to attend their Christmas concert in the auditorium.
