The celebration of Hans Christian Andersen in the Skælskør area. PROJECT MANAGER: Count Ulrich Holstein-Holsteinborg
The Hans Christian Andersen Committee in Skælskør has since 2002 established a large number of projects that contribute to the 2005 bicentenary of the birth of Hans Christian Andersen celebrating Andersen's ties to the Skælskør area. The projects include concerts, opera and theatre performances and exhibitions, guided tours and lectures.
One of the highlights of the local bicentenary celebrations will be a festival with a nationwide appeal. All events organised by the committee will take place at Skælskør Folkehøjskole from 31 July - 5 August 2005.
Early in the Andersen bicentenary year, a brochure will be published featuring all the Skælskør bicentenary events.
