Gothenburg English Speaking Theatre presents
Gothenburg English Speaking Theatre aims to show the best of contemporary British drama and therefore the play is in English and all our actors are from the UK
Upcoming production of Expectations at Folkteatern in Gothenburg. It is showing between April 18th – May 12th and tickets have been released for sale.
Based on the authors own experience, Expectations is an honest, moving, hard hitting and often funny play. Two couples- one English, one Swedish – both prepare for the birth of their child but things don’t turn out the way they had imagined. The play follows their different paths and in the end all four are brought together. There are choices to be made, fears and secrets to share.
For nine months I had been preparing for the biggest journey of my life. I had been waiting expectantly…My suitcase was packed and I was ready. But we never could have prepared ourselves for the destination or the arrival.

Waitangi Day Ministry for Culture and Heritage, updated 5th Feb 2011
Every year on 6 February, New Zealand marks the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. In that year, representatives of the British Crown and over 500 Maori chiefs signed what is New Zealand’s founding document. The day was first officially commemorated in 1934, and it has been a public holiday since 1974.
For some people, Waitangi Day is a holiday; for many, and especially for Maori, it is the occasion for reflecting on the Treaty. Since the 1970s the style and mood of the commemorations on Waitangi Day have been influenced by the increasingly heated debate surrounding the place of the Treaty in modern New Zealand.
Waitangi Day is recognised as New Zealand’s national day, but the long-standing tensions associated with it are always likely to surface in one form or another. The date is an important marker in the country’s history. Recognition of the significance of the Treaty of Waitangi as the nation’s founding document will continue to encourage leaders, communities and individuals to mark the day in new ways.
First pub night in Stockholm, starting on the 31st Jan 2012 at The Liffey in Old Town. With other regular events beginning in Feb 2012. We have to Waitangi Day Dinners arranged in Stockholm and Göteborg for the 10th of Feb 2012.
Business network is slowly progressing and more business joining up. The help section will continued to be added to. To help people get started. Keen to get NZ and friends of NZ business registered with us. Also interested in business in New Zealand that may have some product or service that can be provided here in Sweden or for people traveling to New Zealand from Sweden. The idea is to promote and use the services and products within the network before looking outside. (Supporting NZ business and friends of NZ in Sweden and abroad)
If you run a business, organization or provide some type of service that you think you benefit this network please let me know and we can arrange for you to place your information on this networks websites and social media resources.
Very interested to hear from people that would like to blog or write articles for this network on event, news or information for New Zealanders and friends of New Zealand living or intending to live in Sweden or New Zealand. Email email@example.com
To keep this network growing in 2012, it will need more help from members and interested people from all over Sweden. There is a lot of resources within the network blog. Several groups that may interest people and hopefully in 2012 a active forum for people to ask and answer questions.
Several new sites will go up in 2012 and some new ideas that I hope will help some people living in Sweden.
If you have any questions or ideas about how to push this network forward and create an excellent resources for the members of this network please share them, either post them through our social media channels or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to a stronger and more active network for 2012.
