Walpurgis Night in Borggården becomes Virtualborg at home

Walpurgis Night in the Borggården at Linköping Castle has become an important tradition for the Linköping University Male Voice Choir, students and Linköping residents. It is here and now that we celebrate the arrival of spring. This year, just as many other events, the celebration will take place remotely. It goes without saying that we will offer traditional spring-themed songs, a hat donning ceremony, and speeches, this year from Jan-Ingvar Jönsson, vice-chancellor of Linköping University, Carl Fredrik Graf, county governor, and August Goldhahn, president of the StuFF student union.

Get your student hat out from the wardrobe and join in, but at home. We look forward to seeing you at a rather different Walpurgis Night celebration!
