New Year´s 2020

This year Parisa Amiri and Anders Lundin will be keeping tv viewers company from the Solliden stage at Skansen. For the live broadcast, which will be without an audience in 2020, the actress Sofia Helin has been invited to read Lord Tennyson's poem Ring Out, Wild Bells. On stage we get to see Tomas Ledin, Lisa Nilsson, Kaliffa, Sarah Klang and Amanda Bergman, among others.

- This year we've seen how important the opportunity to meet is, and what a big role our traditions play in that. Therefore we are happy to be able to celebrate New Year's together, despite the fact that Skansen is closed. Few things feel as good in 2020 as being able to call in the new and call out the old, says Skansen's CEO John Brattmyhr.

Tolvslaget på Skansen is broadcasted on Swedish television SVT1, Thursday 31 December at 23.00-00.10.

Ring Out, Wild Bells

"Ring Out, Wild Bells" is a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Published in 1850, the year he was appointed Poet Laureate. It forms part of In Memoriam, Tennyson's elegy to Arthur Henry Hallam, his sister's fiancé who died at the age of twenty-two.

According to a story widely held in Waltham Abbey, the 'wild bells' in question were the bells of the Abbey Church, and according to local story, Tennyson was staying at High Beach in the vicinity and heard the bells being rung. In some versions of the story it was a particularly stormy night and the bells were being swung by the wind rather than deliberately.

Ring out the false, ring in the true. Ring out the grief that saps the mind, For those that here we see no more, Ring out the feud of rich and poor, Ring in redress to all mankind. Ring out a slowly dying cause, And ancient forms of party strife; Ring in the nobler modes of life, With sweeter manners, purer laws. Ring out the want, the care, the sin, The faithless coldness of the times; Ring out, ring out thy mournful rhymes, But ring the fuller minstrel in.
