Crayfish Party in Beijing

The Annual Crayfish Party at Radisson Blu Hotel is about to become one of the most appreciated events at the Swedish Chamber in Beijing, with more guests every year. Almost 260 guests showed up this warm Saturday evening at the Royal Garden. The weather was the absolutely best possible, with a temperature at about +30 C and a clear blue sky, in the evening you could actually see the stars in the black sky, considering the Royal Garden is located in the middle of Beijing this is an extraordinary experience.
       The evening started off with a warm welcome from our MC Alexander Luiga, also thanking our sponsors for their generous contribution, without you this Crayfish Party would not be happening. Our special guests for the evening were Mark Levengood and Henrik Johansson, well known faces from Swedish television but also best friends. During the daytime they work separately, Mark as a writer and a busy lecturer and Henrik with commercial and documentary filming. There unanimous interest is music so whenever possible some special nights they work together playing music on special occasions. In the early evening only Swedish music was spinning and I can assure you this was very much appreciated. The dance floor was not empty for a minute; we kept on dancing until early morning, later on to international music as well. Not to forget Kenneth Hag?s great performance with a potpourri of some of the most famous songs by Swedish singer Per Gessle.
       We would like to extend a Big Thank you to our sponsors, Ericsson, ICA, Radisson Blu, SAS, SEB and Swedbank. Thank you for your strong support.
