We’re getting together for a picnic and game of kubb, also known as “Viking Chess”! if you’ve never played it before, it’s a great game and easy for everyone to join in. Bring your own food and drink and something to sit on!

Never heard of kubb? Here’s an irreverent take on this Swedish game 

We’ll be at the large playing field next to the car park at Pålsjöskog, opposite Pålsjö Crematorium, where there is plenty of space to spread out. There’s also parking at the crematorium or on Romares väg. Public toilets are next to the parking area and there is also one at Pålsjöpaviljongen cafe & waffle house, 5 minutes’ walk away.

Saturday 3 July 11:00 – Street Art Workshop

Want to try out something different in a relaxed environment? Here’s your chance to do just that! Talented local street artist Timothy Avery has connected with HIC to offer two Street Art Workshops this summer! These are aimed at groups of friends, family or colleagues who have never held a spray can before, but would like to try something new and fun together and see results.

Tim will brief you in the use of the paint and safety recommendations. He’ll also help you think through your design and offer tips on how to make it come to life. You’ll be painting on a legal wall in the heart of Helsingborg’s street art district.

Tim is well known in the local street art scene and has worked with Kulturhotellet on a number of projects over the last several years. He is one of the team bringing POW! WOW!, the world’s largest street art festival to Helsingborg in August. He estimates that he’s taught 15 000 children how to paint!
