The ensemble of 30 children, young adults and adults, who come from throughout the region, have been working together over the past several weeks on the festival, which features story and song in Swedish and English.

After the performances, the audience is invited for refreshments in the parish hall. There is no admission fee, but a freewill offering will be collected.
