After the concert, we invite you to a social gathering in the Bistro at Huset with a three-course dinner followed by a night cap to conclude a wonderful evening.

Huset was built in 1951 as a meeting house for the residents of Longyearbyen. As Longyearbyen was originally a “company town” with two class distinctions, Huset was built on “neutral ground” outside the town centre. This legendary building, which is now a leading restaurant, has also served as the local post office, hospital and school.

You will enter a warm and cosy lavvu (Sami herdsmen’s tent) where great music awaits you. Although it’s late in the evening, remember to bring your sunglasses because the sun will not set. The lavvu, surrounded by the spectacular Svalbard nature, will be filled with the sound of Nordic folk music, performed by top notch musicians from the Arctic Philmarmonic. You may buy dinner in the lavvu.
