Events in September: Who is your favorite ‘Queen’ of all time?

Events in September: Who is your favorite ‘Queen’ of all time?

Golden Days
2-18 Sep; various venues;
If you have wondered what is happening around Kongens Nytorv, then the answer is here. In preparation for the annual September history festival Golden Days, the posters of 50 ‘queens’ have been placed on pedestals around its perimeter. But while some are monarchs, living or dead, others are queens in a different way: from Queen of Pop Cher to Queen of our hearts Lady/Princess Diana. It’s all in keeping with the theme of this year’s festival, ’50 QUEENS’ – a chance to celebrate the lives of half a century of female ‘queens’ who have left an indelible impression on the world we live in. Swept up in mood of female empowerment, the organizers expect their events to take over the city to the extent that Kongens Nytorv will be temporarily renamed ‘Dronningens Nytorv’.
