Have a merry, happy grown-up Christmas

No kids, or just want ideas for things to do without the little ‘uns? Rehana Lothian has hand-picked the choicest events for adults this festive season.

December 6 – Official Competition

Skellefteå Film Studio presents
Official Competition, (photo, above) a deeply funny, witty and occasionally absurd comedy written and directed by Argentinians Mariano Cohn and Gastón Duprat. Any screenwriter writing about their own industry needs to be self-aware and this has self-awareness by the bucketload. Starring Penélope Cruz. In Spanish with subtitles.

Where: Nordanåteatern.


Have a merry, happy grown-up Christmas
Official Competition. Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas give masterful performances as two egomaniacs commissioned to make a film together in this delightfully sharp satire of wealth, art, and pride.

December 10 – Jazzklubben Skellefteå

If you missed the Umeå jazz festival but still want a feel for some real lyrical classic jazz, Erik Palmberg will delight. He leads the listener on a fluid journey of musical threads through his natural talent. His album ‘In Between’ is highly acclaimed by audiences and critics alike. 

Where: Din Fest at Campus


December 17 – The Greatest Rock ’n’ Roll Christmas Show

The Greatest Rock ’n’ Roll Christmas show has a hyperbolic title and it looks like they put on a seriously
energetic show. The Boppers retro fun with bebop and rock ’n’ roll classics, along with Brolle and others will add a little swagger to your stride over Christmas time. 

Where: Sara kulturhus


December 26 – Skellefteå AIK

Cast off the tinsel and the fairy lights and go scream for Skellefteå in a top-of-the-table Boxing Day (Annan Dag) match against Växjö.

Skelleftea Kraft Arena
