The celebration of Fastelavn will take place at King's Church in Edinburgh on Saturday 22nd February. We invite children and adults alike to dress up in fancy costumes and join for us at 12pm, when we will commence celebrations with some Danish songs and games.
We will then "slå katten af tønden". There will be a barrel for the older children and a cardboard one for the younger ones to have a go at. We will crown our kattekonge and kattedronning afterwards. Please bring wrapped sweets along to put in the barrels.
The event will be a bring-and-share, so please bring along fastelavnsboller, cakes, fruit or lunch items that we can share. There will be juice for the children and tea/coffee for the adults.
The event is organised by The Danish School in Scotland and all funds will go towards the school.
Members of Danish-Scottish Society can sign up to the event now. We will open for non-members to sign up on the 15th January 2020.
