ABBAWORLD GOES HUNGARY

27 10 2010

 

The story of ABBAWORLD continues; from London by the way of Melbourne, the interactive multimedia exhibition is about to arrive in Györ, 100 kilometers west of Budapest, Hungary. Through the collaboration between promoters ShowTime Budapest, ETO Park in Győr and Viva Art Music, ABBAWORLD will open at Eto Park on the 4th of December. “The ABBAWORLD exhibition has been a success both in London and Melbourne,” says Marton Brady, Managing Director of ShowTime Group. “We are now ready to bring this exciting event to Hungary, and we are very much looking forward to hosting this exhibition.”

Magnus Danielsson, president of Touring Exhibitions, the producer of ABBAWORLD, is confident that the exhibition will bring joy and happiness to all its visitors. “ShowTime Group and Viva Art Music have all the experience needed to make ABBAWORLD into a successful event,” he says. “ABBA was hugely popular in Eastern and Middle Europe in the 70s, and ABBAWORLD will generate a lot of interest among all age groups – and you don’t need to be a fan of ABBA to enjoy the exhibition. It’s fun for everyone.”

For the original members of ABBA, the exhibition in Hungary is a form of compensation for the past.

“We are very happy to see ABBAWORLD come to Hungary,” the group says in a joint statement. “We never managed to tour Eastern Europe, and it feels great to finally give our fans there the opportunity to recreate the experience through ABBAWORLD.”

The interest in ABBAWORLD not only spans generations, it crosses borders all over the world. Marton Brady hopes ABBAWORLD will do just that. “We will be perfectly situated geographically in Györ,” he says. “We are as close to Budapest as we are to Vienna, and we are just 50 kilometers south of Bratislava. Six million people live within an hour’s distance from ABBAWORLD. It will be the perfect day trip for anyone looking for a unique experience.

Showtime Budapest has promoted several large exhibitions in Hungary, such as the Titanic, Dinosaurs, Diana, Beatles and the CSI exhibition. ShowTime is currently running a Da Vinci exhibition at the ETO Park that will end in November. Details on tickets for ABBAWORLD will be disclosed in the near future.

“Agnetha is so happy not to fly”

17 10 2010

Fear of flying has kept Agnetha at home. It was thanks that she was able to travel by car to Copenhagen, when last Friday, quite unexpectedly, she was reunited on stage with Björn Ulvaeus.

– Agnetha is so happy not to fly so this was good, “says her manager Görel Hanser.
Agnetha says “It was very spontaneous” It was the first time since 1981 that they stood together on stage, and many were surprised that the normally camera-shy Agnetha, accepted. Ulvaeus also confirmed that the idea originally was that only he would have been in Copenhagen. 
- It was very spontaneous, “he said.
“Coincidentally”
Expressen today revealed what it was that got Agnetha to change her mind. She suffers from air terror, and when she could get to the premiere in Denmark without having to fly, she decided to go. 
- Agnetha is so happy not to fly, so this was good. She had not seen “Mamma Mia” in a long time and thought it would be fun when it was so close to home said Görel Hanser.

Charity: KINDER IN NOT

Founders: ANNI-FRID LYNGSTAD-REUSS and DAN DANIELL, Zermatt, Schwitzerland

KINDER IN NOT was established several years ago by Frida Lyngstad Reuss and her friend in Zermatt Dan Daniell. They wanted to help children in need and to create a charity without geographical borders but also without the large administrative costs that goes with a full-size organization. Since then several contributions has been made to children in need in Russia and Rumania. All contributions to the foundation are invested once a year in one or several different projects.  Last year (2009) KINDER IN NOT gave a donation to “Foundation Enfants de Papillon”, an organization for support and research regarding the very rare genetic disease Epidermolysis Bullosa or Butterfly Children.
