We are very excited to introduce a new format for the very first time – the Winter Special. Live from our theatre for our online audience!

A not-to-be-missed event will premier on 20 December at 7.30 pm. Afterwards, the ETH special will be accessible free of charge over the holidays on our homepage.


We are proud to present a range of exciting interviews and performances by our star lineup of guests, including Helen Sheals, Petter Bjällö, and the wonderful Joanne Bell.
