Thongs on for Thingyan

Summer is definitely here, and if the blazing sunshine has not quite convinced you yet then these events certainly will

Burmese Water Festival
Thingyan, the Burmese new year festival, is the inspiration for this educational water-fest. Starting with a brief introduction to Burmese culture, you will be treated to Burmese food, music and dance, culminating in pool-time fun for the kids and the ‘kids-at-heart’. Best of all – it’s free! A

Firestation open day
For a classic day out with the kids, Tomsgården’s fire station will be open to the public this Saturday. Firefighters will be giving basic fire-fighting demonstrations and advice about fire prevention, although children will probably be most interested in practising ‘taming’ a wayward fire hose themselves or clambering up behind the wheel of a fire-engine.

Twelve Angry Men
Twelve jurors gather at the New York courts on a hot day in summer 1954 with the task of determining whether a 16-year-old boy has killed his father – and little by little, one juror manages to call the entire case into doubt. Such is the plot of the Copenhagen Theatre Circle’s latest production, Twelve Angry Men, which is presented as a live radio play that will transport audiences back to the 1950s. JH

A Retrospective
Until recent years Yoko Ono’s infamy has overshadowed her artistic career, but slowly she has carved a space in the art world and is now well-respected in all the right circles. The retrospective features work from the 1960s and 1970s, as well as some of Ono’s recent peace activism and human rights work. For those who only think of Ono as an unfortunate widow of one of the world’s most famous musicians, visit the exhibition to decide for yourself. ES
