VIOLENCE, SEX, HUMILIATION, MURDER AND RUIN. RICHARD III IS PROBABLY THE EVILEST VILLAIN IN THE HISTORY OF THEATRE. DO YOU DARE LOOK HIM IN THE EYE?

THE DANISH SUMMER IS A GLORIOUS THING. THE LONG, GREY, AND MELANCHOLIC WINTER IS THE ANTITHESIS TO THESE FRIVOLOUS, LIGHT-FILLED, BALMY DAYS WHICH SEES DENMARK STRAINING AT THE BUTTONS TO STRIP-OFF AND HEAD FOR THE BEACH. Many internationals will have jetted off to visit their homelands or for package holidays of sand, sea, sangria and sunbeds. But for those of you who’ve stayed to chance it with the weather, and knowing that the furthest point from the coast anywhere in Denmark is just 50 km, perhaps the best idea is to enjoy some of the great beaches on our doorstep, and why not? Some of the best white sand beaches in Denmark are in West Jutland, Marielyst Beach on Falster, Tisvildeleje and Hornbæk beaches on the Danish Riviera in North Sealand. But if you find beach life a little soporific, here’s a fine compilation of some great events around Denmark. PHOTOGRAPHS VISIT DENMARK

4 JULY CELEBRATION In 1912 a group of Danish immigrants living at the time in America purchased 140 acres of rolling countryside near Rold in northern Jutland. During the first 4 July celebrations, the land was donated to the Danish people, and since then, every 4 July the 140 acres is filled with thousands of people. The celebration in the hills of Rebild is a token of gratitude towards America, the country that greeted more than 300,000 Danish immigrants with open arms. The celebration serves also the tradition of strengthening the bonds of friendship between the USA and Denmark visualized by the “Stars and Stripes” and the Danish flag, “Dannebrog”, flying side by side in the natural amphitheatre. You will experience music, entertainment, a truly international community, singing and speeches by prominent Americans and Danes. Among the former keynote speakers are members of the Danish royal family, Richard M. Nixon, and Walt Disney.
