Welcome to the Southern Cross Club
The Southern Cross Club is a social club for Aussies and Kiwis living in Denmark.
Our goal is provide our members with a network, organise get-togethers and events where we, as a club,
can have some fun and keep in touch with what's going on downunder.
If you're a Kiwi or an Aussie living here in, or on your way to, Denmark,
you're welcome to keep an eye on what's going on here on our website - but we'd rather you joined :-)
The membership fee (both single and family) is pretty reasonable really,
and we'll not only keep you up to date on our social events, but you'll also be entitled to discounts.
Basically it comes down to your level of participation - like all things - and how much
you are willing to enjoy the club and the activities we organise.
Make sure you sign up NOW so you're not left out.
By signing up you'll be able to meet people from home,
share your wisdom throughout our community as well as receive our regular
club emails with the latest in club news and events.
We ask that our members pay a subscription. Singles 100 kr, Family or Couples 180 kr and members from Funen,
Jutland and Sweden 75 kr.
This covers our basic costs for the administration of the Club including newsletters,
internet and supplements to some of our events. We also ask that our members get involved in our activities and
maybe inspire and motivate us to other activities.
All monies to The Club should be paid to the Clubs account
registration number 1551 account number 3046613.
Fat Freddy's Drop Competition
We have a competition coming up where you can win two tickets to the coming Fat Freddy's Drop concert. Keep your eyes glued to the website or even better,come along to our Café Evening! Simon
Café Evening 12 February 2016
Our next Café Evening will be held at Floras Kaffebar, Blågårdsgade 27, 2200 København N. You can walk there from Forum Metro Station or catch bus 5A a few stops from Nørreport. Floras is an institution that's been there quite some time. We earlier held a brunch there. We liked Paludan Book Cafe where we held a few café evenings, but it was difficult to get a table and the queue for drinks and eats was very long, so we're trying something new. Come along and meet other Kiwis and Aussies. New people are very welcome. Look out for the NZ and Aussie flags! We'll be there at 7.30pm. Simon
Christmas Get Together 12 Dec 2pm
Once again, the club has been somewhat inactive this year, for various reasons. Several of the committee have spent significant amounts of time down under this year, mostly to do with ageing family members back home. One of the committee even got posted to the US, without telling us!
However, we were thinking it was about time for a get together, and Christmas is as good an excuse as any - so, we would like to invite as many members and friends as can make it, to an afternoon with 'gløgg and æbleskiver', at Mark and Lotte's (Bernstorffsvej 5 in Hellerup), on Saturday the 12th of December, from 2pm (kl. 14 for those who have been here too long :-) ).
As per last year, we will supply gløgg, æbleskiver, tea/coffee, soft drinks for the kids and a nice warm fire.
We would like everyone to bring along an interesting Christmas delicacy - e.g. Pavlova from Australia (or was that from NZ?), mince pies from the UK, Stollen from Germany - be creative! - and some wine/beer if you're not into gløgg.
Please RSVP by Thursday the 10th of December, so we know how many cups, glasses and chairs to get out.
Cheers for now, and if we don't see you on the 12th, Merry Christmas from me and the (remaining) committee.
Fat Freddy's Drop 3 April 2016
Wellington band Fat Freddy's Drop have proved so successful in Denmark that their annual concerts here are always sold out! Their concert on 30 November 2015 is no exception. The organisers have taken pity on those unable to get tickets and moved the venue for the next concert on 3 April 2016 from Store Vega to Falconer Salen. Ticket sales start on Monday 16 November 2015 at 10am. Don't miss out!
Black Friday Café Evening Nov 13
As I'm sure you're all aware, tomorrow is Friday the 13th of November, apparently also this year known as Black Friday.
I'm sure you're also all aware that it's the second Friday of the month, and therefore, also time for the SCC Cafe night. I'm sure all you Aussies are just itching to hear yet more gloating from the Kiwis - apparently they won a rugby match, or something......
Once again, this month we've chosen to head to Paludan's Bookshop Cafe on Fiolstræde. I'm sure you've all walked past it or been in there - it serves a good range of beers at ok prices (this is Copenhagen, after all) and the food is excellent.
So if you're at a loose end for tomorrow evening, please join us at Paludan's, from around 1930 onwards.
