Night with Andersen 2016

The Czech School in Copenhagen joined also this year the international Night with Andersen, a Czech-initiated event organized by the libraries to support and promote children's interest in reading.

Night with Andersen is being held since 2000 on the occasion of the anniversary of the birth of Danish fairy-tale writer, Hans Christian Andersen, which falls on 2 April. This year's event marked the 180th anniversary of The Little Mermaid fairy-tale, which was also the theme selected for Night with Andersen 2016, and 40th anniversary of the Czech film version of the fairy-tale by Karel Kachyňa. Besides the Czech Republic the event took place also in Slovakia, Poland, Slovenia, the Ukraine and the Czech schools abroad.

The Czech School in Copenhagen arranged a programme for the children of Czech expats living in Denmark 2 – 3 April 2016 in Albertslund.
