Family picnic

To celebrate Bloomsday and the 100th anniversary of Ulysses, the Embassy of Ireland in Denmark will host a family picnic for the Irish community and friends in Kongens Have, Copenhagen, on Saturday June 11.

We are delighted to have performers from Københavns Shakespeare Kompagni joining us on the day, with lots of activities for children including readings, songs and interactive storytelling, and we will even have some goody bags!

Guests are encouraged to wear Joyce-inspired accessories – think straw hats, round glasses, a cane, braces, ruffled blouses, long skirts and shawls.

"Ulysses for Psychonauts" with Conner Habib

To mark Bloomsday and the 100th anniversary of the publication of Ulysses, the Irish Embassy in Denmark will host an engaging and interactive literary event with podcaster and author, Conner Habib, about how reading Ulysses can help you to explore your consciousness, on Tuesday 14 June.

In this interactive talk, we’ll leave aside the “right” and “wrong” ways to interpret the book, and instead use the book to interpret ourselves, and to explore experience and consciousness.
