4-7 August 2005. Offering a literally bewildering array of entertainment and activities, the annual harbour-side festival in Copenhagen, the Kulturhavn, is an event which has something for everybody.
The festival area covers three different sections of the Copenhagen waterfront: the Harbour Park at Islands Brygge, Havneholmen and Kalvebod Brygge and all three are connected by a free water bus laid on for the occasion. At Havneholm there is a new swimming pool in the harbour at the Copencabana Beach.
This year there are 112 activities on offer and they are all free. The Kulturhavns stated aims are to help promote the multitude of cultural and sporting associations operating in the Danish capital and each association has their own slot. The list of things to see and do is endless traditional folk music performances, water trampolines, art installations, Tai Chi classes, theatre improvisation, canoeing, poetry readings and concerts....to name just a few: the website has a detailed programme in Danish and English. The Culture Harbour is open on Thursday and Friday from 14.00 to 22.00 and on Saturday and Sunday from 12.00 to 22.00.
