- United Nations Day Grimeton VLF Transmission and Concert 15:30 to 17:00 BST (Note that times shown on the websites are in CET)
"On the occasion of UN Day 24 October, an annual peace party consisting of telegram transmission is held with the old long-wave machinery SAQ.
Given the past year and the Covid-19 pandemic, the day is extra important to pay attention to as this year's message, the importance of cross - border cooperation, rhymes well with the UN's vision.
This year's telegram has therefore been formulated by none other than Anders Tegnell, State Epidemiologist at the Swedish Public Health Agency, and the content of the telegram will not be published until 17.00 [16:00 BST]. Finally, the concert Songs from The Vault with Anna Louise Ekman is held, which is current with a digital release of newly written songs in 2020.
Also on stage are pianist Oscar Johansson and Anna's sister Åsa Grimberg on vocals."
