Venue Overview

The Follow the Viking event in Denmark took place on the 13th of October on Culture Night in Denmark, one of Copenhagen's most well-attended cultural events. When the schools begin their autumn holiday the association Kulturnatten creates a festive evening, where the entire cultural life of the city works together to create joy and inspiration. More than 250 museums, theatres, libraries, churches, ministries and parks throughout the city welcomed the public during Copenhagen's biggest annual one-day event.

The Follow the Viking Roadshow was exhibited in the exterior courtyard at the National Museum and was one of the largest Follow the Viking events in the calendar to date. The large projections covered one side of the interior space and was shown 3 times throughout the evening. Dancers from the much acclaimed Copenhagen Dance Arts were an integral part of the event, bringing both technical and traditional skills to the performance.

The Roadshow was performed three times and attracted an audience of over 3,000 people.
