Midsommarfirande

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MIDSOMMAR i LONDON

Traditionellt svenskt midsommarfirandemed dans kring midsommarstången, folkdans, ringlekar, allsång, försäljning av varmkorv, jordgubbstårta, kaffe & te, blomsterkransar, lotter... Fiskdamm och barnlekar mm. Ingen anmälan och det är gratis! Ta med picnic-korgen, filten, sommarkänslan och kom! 
Midsommardagen, lördag 22 juni, kl 15-18 i Southwark Park, Rotherhithe. Närmsta tunnelbanestation är Canada Water och overground Surrey Quays.

 

Please note that, unlike last year, this meetup is in Southwark Park. It's an organised event and will be a very traditional affair.

 

(The informal and ad hoc Hyde Park gathering is still going ahead with many Swedes and non-Swedes expected to descent on Hyde Park to drink and wear flowers in their hair.)

    Thanks to all of you that came and made midsommar 2013 a lovely memory! I danced the frog song-dance 3 times so I'm very pleased and truly enjoyed the whole day/ evening!
    In true Swedish democratic order, Hyde park was voted the winning venue for next year, however I think the Swedish church had done a great job to create the genuine midsommar atmospher in southwark park, it even rained.
    Good to see you all!!!

    Hello everyone, I really looking forward to celebrate Midsommar with you on Saturday!

    Here is a few things that are good to bring on Saturday:
    - Some food to share
    - Something to Drink
    - something to sit on
    - your singing voice, because you can't drink snapps without singing 'snapps songs' (and you can't sing without drinking, hmm..somehow Swedes manage this)
    - your beautiful smile :)

    So, how will you find me? Well, that's the tricky bit but you can try to call me,[masked] or ask everyone you see where the meetup group is. If they don't know you have not found us..yet ;)

    I will bring some song lyrics and some treats for you :)

    I look forward to see old friends and meet new on Saturday!

    Vanliga halsningar,
    Malin

    Hi, what are filten and sommarkaenslan? And is the park small enough that it will be obvious where you are? I've not been to any of your meetups before so won't know anyone...
