If you’re in southern Sweden with bored kids this weekend then BUFF, the International Children and Young People’s Film Festival in Malmö might be a good bet. Founded in 1984, the festival has screenings of films for children and young people as well as adults.
For the more outdoorsy types among you there's the Vildmarksmässan outdoor show in Stockholm where you can try out different sports and take classes both at a beginner and professional level. Activities include rock-climbing, trail-running, a Mount Everest-style obstacle course and many more.
Elsewhere in Stockholm, pop-folk French singer and actress Stéphanie Sokolinski will be performing at Debaser Strand in Hornstull on Tuesday March 10th. Best known for her hit ‘I’ll kill her’ and her single ‘We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow’, which was the theme song to the viral PR hit “First Kiss”, she’s just released her second album.

It’s been described as an evening “in the borderland between jazz, indie, folk, soul, metal, country, pop and contemporary music”. On the evening of March 11th Gothenburg will be welcoming music lovers for Festival Cosmopolit. Highlights include performances from songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jenny Ritter from Vancouver and the new Swedish trio Nord/Långbacka/Dahl. For more details and tickets click here.
And finally, spring is on its way, but for Game of Thrones fans in Stockholm, "winter is coming". There’s an exhibition coming to Kungsträdgården devoted to the hit series that opens on Saturday 7th and ends Wednesday 11th. Don’t miss your chance to sit on the iron throne and check out costumes, props and weapons from the set.
After all, the series is basically set in Sweden.
