Foto:Brenda Ahearn

Autumn is here, now we go to watch ice-hockey, go to the theatre, listen to music and celebrate that Kulturhuset Barbacka is thirty years old. But football is still alive and kicking. In the struggle for a top place in the Women’s League KDFF play at home to FC Rosengård on 26th October.

Barbacka starts its anniversary celebrations on the same day with cakes and theatre.

And something exciting, ”Peter Pan” will be performed at Kristianstad Theatre on 31st October by the Theatre without Words.

Another exciting thing to do is to see Stjärnförsöket – about how light from our towns interferes with the light from the stars in the sky. At Naturum on 9th November.
