Win a Trip to Norway!

Norway
The latest season of Northern Arc concerts in Aberdeen’s Music Hall will transport their audiences to Norway – literally in the case of one lucky concert goer.

For Aberdeen Performing Arts, Wideroe airlines and Victoria Hotel are offering Northern Arc concert-goers prize of a weekend trip for two people to Stavanger, simply by enjoying at least two of the three concerts. The winning name will be drawn after the last concert of the series in June.
APA Northern Arc spring series includes:
Saturday 7 February: Karine Polwart with Sigrid Moldestad

Friday 3 April: Karen Matheson Band with Erlend Viken Trio

Saturday 27 June: Lau with Valkyrien Allstars

Celebrating the Nordic soul, the series is not just about music and the pre-show events in the Music Hall café includes presentations about Norwegian traditions, artists and links between Scotland and Norway. The other links are already well established as Wideroe airlines operate 6 flights daily from Aberdeen to Norway – to both Stavanger and Bergen – making them ideal weekend break destinations.

‘A special request from our friends at ACT Aberdeen’

On Tuesday 5th May we plan to discuss our initial thoughts on the future cultural strategy of ACT Aberdeen, and we would welcome your individual input in helping us shape the next 10 years of our business.

We are aiming for this strategy to represent the widest possible range of people who currently use ACT, along with potential new members of the ACT family. It is important that we have your insight so our invitation to this event has been extended to our staff, volunteers, board, users and friends.

We would ask that you keep Tuesday 5th May free so you can join us for a day of interactive workshops and sessions which will give you the opportunity to share your valuable knowledge with us. Refreshments will be provided.

Timings for this day and evening event will be divided into two to three sessions and will be sent nearer the time, but if you could let us know by Friday April 10th if you can attend at least part of the day it will help us create the best possible outcome for everybody.

If you would like to attend please rsvp or for more info contact paula@act-aberdeen.org.uk

Send us your pictures!

If you are attending the Jazz Festival this week or any other cultural event we would love to see your pictures via Twitter or Facebook. Use the hashtag #ABpoz
