– We have already received inquiries from people who want to go. Many of them say it’s been a long time since they last went to a Christmas party, says Hilda Kro-Engesauter from Bimischönen.
The Rom i Herberget concert, with Gypsy orchestra Solfrid Molland and Gjertrud, costs NOK 200 per adult.
Now it will be completely possible to experience the spirit of Christmas completely free of charge. This will happen simply by not checking tickets at the front door.
The City Mission, Voluntary Centre, Odda Church, Parish Council and Ullensvang Municipality are behind this game.
– We want to invite all residents of Odda to a church Christmas party on Sunday. Everyone enters for free or they can pay an entry/collection ticket – completely voluntary. We want to include everyone, even families with up to ten children. Going to a Christmas party in December can be a big expense and we want everyone to have this good Christmas atmosphere with joy, mood, love and spaciousness. That’s why we also stand together, all of these agencies, to spread a little Christmas cheer this Christmas season, says John Graffdale Elton.
The traditional concert at Christmas time in Odda Church under the auspices of Oddakonsertene was very popular. This year, the concert is just one of several pre-Christmas concerts. In November, Helen Boxel was at the cinema, and Ellen Vorobotten was on stage at Etney. There will also be a concert in Røldal and Skare before Christmas.
The room at the Herberget, with orchestras of gypsies Solfried Molland and Gertrude, in the Ude chapel is still a great investment.
– We do not order tickets and therefore do not know whether people have paid or not. Elton says the only thing we want is for as many people as possible to be together on an evening during Advent to celebrate Christmas.
The organizer states that there has been a good supply of tickets so far. The goal is to fill the entire church with people.
For decades, Gunn has been bringing people together: – It has become a way of life
