What’s On – March 9-12

Today is women’s day so let’s take a look at some events celebrating women this weekend.

Tomorrow Thursday at 19.30 the Swiss Museum of Transport will be broadcasting Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen live from the National Theatre. This play is about a newly married woman who feels imprisoned in her role as housewife. It is a very powerful play and the wonderful Ruth Wilson is up for an Oliver (the Oscar’s of the theatre world) for her portrayal of Hedda. Be prepared for a very powerful evening. More information here.


Friday March 10th will be the opportunity to catch the luminescent Greek singer Maria Samara at Chez Cassis at 20.30



and Sunday the LiLi Centre will be holding their Supersheroes Brunch. With the aim of empowering women through knowledge, the centre will be holding monthly events. This Sunday there will be a workshop entitled “Reimagining your professional Identity” and another “Tapping into your creativity”, a delicious and nutritious brunch cooked by Ottilie from Nourished. You can sign up for the event here.

Also of note is the Literature festival which will start on Friday March 9th until Sunday 12th. Taking place in the Kornschütte, there will be books galore as well as readings. More details here.

If you fancy some wonderful music and help to raise money for a good cause then Saturday night at 17.00 you should go to listen to the Vector Quartet who will be performing at the International Church of Lucerne in order to raise money for the charity Let’s Share.


Finally if you are caught up in the Rugby 6 nations fever but don’t want to go to a crowded pub, then head over to the LiLi Centre Saturday night at 17.00. They will be showing the England- Scottish match in a fun and convivial atmosphere with break out corners for those who want to take a break of the rugby or practice a tackle.



Charlie Hartmann is the managing director of the Living in Luzern organisation which focuses on helping international residents connect, grow and thrive in Switzerland.
