Three nights, two nations and one chance to win a trip to Norway!

Three nights, two nations and one chance to win a trip to Norway!

The latest season of Northern Arc concerts in Aberdeen’s Music Hall will transport their audiences to Norway – literally in the case of one lucky concert goer.

For Aberdeen Performing Arts, Wideroe airlines and Victoria Hotel are offering Northern Arc concert-goers prize of a weekend trip for two people to Stavanger, simply by enjoying at least two of the three concerts. The winning name will be drawn after the last concert of the series in June.

APA Northern Arc spring series includes:

Saturday 7 February: Karine Polwart with Sigrid Moldestad
Friday 3 April: Karen Matheson Band with Erlend Viken Trio
Saturday 27 June: Lau with Valkyrien Allstars

Celebrating the Nordic soul, the series is not just about music and the pre-show events in the Music Hall café includes presentations about Norwegian traditions, artists and links between Scotland and Norway. The other links are already well established as Wideroe airlines operate 6 flights daily from Aberdeen to Norway – to both Stavanger and Bergen – making them ideal weekend break destinations.
