Give your children a taste of Danish theatre with this child-friendly performance staged at the capital’s premier venue. Immersed in a fantasy universe, relentless special effects will ensure their imaginations run wild. This could be the show where their love of theatre begins.

Making friends at Fastelavn

Take a tour around the National History Museum at Frederiksborg Castle and discover why Christian IV wants to ban the holiday! And then beat the cat out of the barrel (only Feb 15 & 19) to earn your treasure. Alternatively, visit Frilandsmuseet at Fastelavn (Feb 11-19, 10:00-16:00) to enjoy obstacle courses, ring riding, barrel beating and clown shows.

Some tots like it hot!

Children’s Jazz Show
Feb 4 at 14:00; Sankt Johannes Kirke , Cph N; free adm

Normally in the Copenhagen Jazz Festival, there are dozens of concerts specially aimed at youngsters, but for Vinter Jazz this February, we could only find one: Børnejazz med Sille og Palle. The duo are the main contributors to DR Ramasjang program ‘Rosa fra Rouladegade’, so they know how to handle a rowdy crowd!
