Spring Programme, 2019


Most welcome to the events planned for our 2019 Spring Programme.

The Society’s centennial is now upon us and a splendid  celebratory year lies ahead.


SOCIETY EVENINGS

 Wednesday 27nd February, 27th March, 24th April & 29th May at 6 pm. 

Valhallavägen 104.

 Welcome again to the Society’s now-regular ‘last Wednesday-of-the-month' evenings’. 

There will be drinks and bits to eat and Society Council members. 

We meet for a chat and exchanges of ideas in our “Pub” - the Swe-Brit Arms. 

Refreshments are at give-away prices. Owing to the possible shortage of space, 

please confirm that you’re coming, to 
08-678 73 33 or by email [email protected]  

not later than 16th February, 24th March, 21st April & 26th May, respectively. 


SVENSKT TENN
Wednesday 10th April, 6pm, Strandvägen 5

In October 1924, Estrid Ericson, a thirty-year-old art teacher from Hjo, 
invested her small inheritance in Svenskt Tenn, 
the company she founded in Smålandsgatan.

We will be guided through the company’s history to date. A sumptuous tea will include 

shrimp open sandwiches with egg, 

mayonnaise and traditional trimmings. There will also be scones, petits fours and a choice of teas, 

all washed down with champagne or iced tea. Do come!

R.S.V.P. by 28 March please, to 08-6787333 or by e-mail to [email protected]

The evening will cost 600:-, 465:- for pensioners. Please pay to plusgiro 3424-9



FILM EVENING –  Darkest Hour ­­

Valhallavägen 104, 15 April, 6.00 p.m. 


The 2017 film Darkest Hour takes us back to May 1940 when Churchill,

 despite angry opposition, took over the seemingly hopeless fight

 against Nazi tyranny. We see events not as in a ‘conventional’ war film

 but through the lives of the newly-appointed prime minister and those around him.

Darkest Hour will be the second of our films spanning the century of the Society’s existence. 

The first was Miss Potter, which we showed in March. 

The March showing was  much appreciated, confirming our decision to offer more film evenings.    

As before, light refreshments will be served from 5.30 p.m. and in the interval. 

The cost for the evening is 140 crowns. Please book a.s.a.p. to ensure a place, [email protected] or 

08-6787333. 


SPRING EXCURSION

Rånäs Castle and Sigtuna

Tuesday 28th May, leaving at 9.30 am. 

A chartered bus will take us from Valhallavägen 157 (T-Station Karlaplan – exit Tessinparken)

 to the seventeenth-century Italianate castle, Rånäs slott.

A guide will show us round and tell us its history. We’ll stay for lunch, 

after which there will be free time to wander in the beautiful park.

Our bus will then take us on to historic Sigtuna for afternoon coffee and cakes at 
Tant Bruns Kaffestuga. When we’ve strolled along Sigtuna High Street 
looking at the old houses and small shops, our bus will take us back to Valhallavägen 157,
 arriving around 5.30 pm.
The cost of this all-day excursion is 750:- for members, 795:- for non-members (plusgiro 3424-9). 
This includes return bus, guided tour, lunch, afternoon coffee and cake.

The programme will be presented on our web page.

If you have not already told us your e-mail address,

 please do so by mailing [email protected]

Also, we are not sending Membership Cards this year,

 nor plusgiro forms for paying membership fees.

 Please pay your annual fee to our plusgiro 3424-9.
