  • Description


    We run a summer theatre, 300 meters from the harbour in a small fisher Village in the South of Sweden. It is a well-known and vibrant cultural centre that attracts audiences from all over Sweden with different performances and cultural activities. The theatre is located in the main tourist region of Sweden - Skåne/Österlen, a beutiful region with wide and miles long, white sand beaches and plenty of nice venues to visit. The nature is magnificent and serves well for biking and hiking.

    The theatre has three different stages and has been awarded many prizes. It is managed by a nice and friendly Swedish couple (speaks good English, Frensh and Spanish) who recently restored the whole building and will now start to grow ecological food to serve in the restaurant of the theatre.

    The Theatre is located in a small fisher village, in the beautiful region of Skåne/Österlen. We have bikes for you as a volunteer to use and it takes 20-30 minutes (great biking tracks next to the sea) to bike to the nearest City - Simrishamn, one of the main tourist cities of Skåne.
