Autumn Events

Dear Friends,
Although the Festival is drawing to an end, there are several Norway-inspired events to look forward to in the next couple of months. In addition to the performances of Turbonegro, A Doll’s House and Bergen Emboushoure Ensamble at the Festivals, both the highly renowned Largs Viking Festival and the Sea Fest in Arbroath featuring the heroic Norwegian sea-dog Bamse will make the autumn quite eventful. Add the WW2 Commemoration in Dumfries and the possibility of learning Norwegian at Edinburgh University, and you have several choices for the second half of 2007.
