Don’t stay still this week, instead take a dip in the cultural pool at your feet, whether it’s theatre, cabaret nights or exhibitions.

Much Ado About Nothing

In the open-air and summer shade of Rosenborg castle, the American Drama Group in Europe introduce non-native speakers to the depth of English theatre. Set in Sicily and revered as Shakespeare’s greatest romantic comedy, the play follows the lives of two, very different pairs of lovers. And then after the performance, if you have a hand-holding partner, wander the walkways of the King’s Gardens to discover the rose garden and the numerous sculptures that pepper the grounds.
