Not Quite a Ceilidh 2017

EMMA CNUT bloodaxe_hearts_namesCelebrating the Royal Wedding of the Millenniun – 1017

The marriage of King Canute to Queen Emma was the most significant (and most forgotten) event of English history. 

A Danish King and a Norman Queen created Britain as a one nation state and led to the union of England, Denmark and Norway. A sort of alternative European Union which we will refer to as the DNA union – the union of the Danish, Norman and Anglo-Saxon peoples.  If you call yourself British – what’s your DNA?

The most well known story of King Canute and Queen Emma refers to the incident with the waves. Here is Marriott Edgar’s take on the story http://www.seiyaku.com/lit/monologues/008.html

The NQaC evening starts with a dramatic reading of The Royal Wedding of 1017, our own play celebrating the 1000th anniversary of the marriage of King Canute and Queen Emma (1017-2017).

This year we will be using the approved Anglo-Swedish DNA testing system to identify the DNA of eight towns in England – just how Viking is England really?

Venue: Haga Östergata 30B, Göteborg
Date: 27th October 18:00
Price: 200:- for members of the Anglo-Swedish or British Clubs. 250:- for non-members.

The wedding list: you may bring presents – Emma asks that you restrict the cost to less than 50 kronor – eg a bar of chocolate nicely wrapped would be appropriate. (The presents will be distributed to the winers of the DNA game. )

To book: Places can be reserved via our GoogleDocs EVENTS PAGE (http://tinyurl.com/ASwS-events) or write to events@angloswedish.se

Please join us for the recreation of the Royal Wedding of the Millennium and the DNA testing of England on the 27th October.
