Event Description: Hi folks,

Let's all go out on a nice cruise among the islands! We'll get off at an old fortress on an island outside of Vaxholm where Sofia Karlsson will hold a concert consisting of popular Swedish ballads and folk songs.

The steamship Blid?sund leaves from Skeppsbron (by the palace in Gamla Stan) at 18:30 prompt, and will return sometime after 23:00. The cost is 225 kr for a deck ticket (includes concert). There's a bar onboard which sells drinks and sandwiches. You will need to buy your own ticket in advance. Please indicate when you sign up if you have made a reservation.

There are three ways to get your ticket. You can book via phone at[masked] or online, and then pick up and pay at any ATG betting shop or kiosk (you can find them in most shopping centers, see link below). Alternatively, you can go to the shipping line office in Gamla Stan (Ferkens Gr?nd 3, near Skeppsbron) and buy the ticket there.

Please note: You need to buy the ticket called "D?ck" for the boat "Blid?sund" (not "Norrsk?r") or else we won't be located together. The online price is 205 kr, but you will end up paying 225 kr with the service fee.
