Lilla Luckan at the Night of the Arts

Thursday was the Night of the Arts, and therefore loads of art related opportunities and eg good sales in book shops all around the city. Even though it was also a week night we decided to continue from the Night Market to the city centre to get a glimpse of everything going on. Talking about our options in the underground our children decided on the super arty option of a jumping castle, so we went to Lilla Luckan between Simonkatu and Narinkkatori.

Lilla Luckan is the meeting place for Swedish speaking families offering cultural programme in Swedish, often for free. Last time we watched movies there, this time our kids enjoyed both the jumping castle and the children’s concert by Robin Hund och hans glada orkester. Please find their programme for the autumn here.

We also popped in to Luckan, the version for adults on the other side of Simonkatu, where staff offered juice, popcorn and balloons for the kids. But there also is a good selection of children’s books in several languages (not Finnish), newspapers can be read and computers and Internet used for free, they sell tickets to a number of events. Luckan also hosts Integration services to immigrants in Helsinki. So a useful place but after buying a few more books it was time for us to go to bed. But it was a fun and free night out!
