Advent Gathering 2017

The Embassy is pleased to extend an invitation to all Norwegians in the area and their families to join us for an Advent Gathering on Thursday, 30th of November at 17.00 onwards.

This informal, family-oriented event, which will be held at the Ambassador's Residence, will include classic Norwegian children’s songs and some competitions. A social event not to be missed, the Embassy will be providing some traditional Christmas porridge (“grøt”) and drinks, as well as waffles and a selection of cakes.

We will also be joined by chaplain Jan Olav Johannessen from Sjømannskirken – the Norwegian Church Abroad. And who knows, maybe even Santa Claus himself might also show up to greet the children?

To request an invitation, please email the Embassy at
