Get ready for an evening of good friends, lovely food and plain old fun!

The Queen’s Birthday Party is for everyone at all ages (adults, that is). It’s a great opportunity to spend time with Club friends, catch up with people you may not have seen for while, and get to know other members better. Also, invite friends and family to join you and share in the festivities—it’s a treat they will appreciate.

This year we will return to serving the main meal buffet style, as we used to, and are prepared to lend a helping hand to anyone who requests it. The food is our wonderful traditional birthday fare with herring, shrimp and salmon to start, a main course of flæskesteg, frikadeller and the trimmings, followed by cheese and Danish dessert. It doesn’t get much better than that, does it?

We have hired a DJ, Octave Entertainment, who will bring thousands of your favourite songs. All you have to bring is your dancing shoes.
