Æbelholt Abbey Fair
June 11-12; Æbelholt Abbey, Hillerød; 75kr

This is a fantastic recreation of the original medieval festival, all squeezed into two days.

Beginning with an 11 am church service, once your soul has been redeemed, unleash your capitalist spirit at the multitude of stalls.

Listen to medieval songs and folk tales while eating sausages and stuffed pancakes and of course drinking the beer and mead of yesteryear.

Learn more about the history of the abbey and the healing powers of its famous herb garden, while children can try a spot of archery, pretend to be a knight, make some jewellery and try their hand at painting. (AJ)


 

Friday Night Skate
June 10 & 24, 20:00; various locations; free adm; fns-cph.dk

It’s time to dust off your rollerblades. Friday Night Skate is back and you can set the wheels in motion in the company of 500 like-minded skaters whizzing around the streets of Copenhagen. Find the 20 km route online. (PS)


 

Cyclonudista
June 12, 17:00; Amagerfælled Park, Eksercerpladsen, Cph S

Whether you join in or spectate is up to you, but you will need a bike to join this celebration of cycling and nature: a long bicycle ride in the nude. Protesting against pollution and traffic, it is certainly the most unusual event this June. (AJ)


 

Jette Bang & Kirsten Klein
June 18-Aug 21, 10:00-17:00; Nordatlantens Brygge, Strandgade 91, Cph K; 40kr; nordatlantens.dk

Two photographers from different generations point their lenses at Greenland. How do their works resemble or differ from one another? The exhibition shows a new side of Greenland. (JQ)
