Put on your most festive outfit and join our afterwork evening starting at 16:30. We will begin the evening at Bistro Nobel, where music and bubbly will flow and tasty refreshments will be available. During the evening, you can take a guided tour of our new exhibition The Nobel Prize Banquet – behind the scenes.

What goes through the mind of the florist in charge of decorating the Blue Hall with 25,000 flowers and stems, how do you set tables for 1,250 guests, and what does the special stick look like that is used to measure the distance between the plates when setting those tables? The first banquet was held in 1901 when the Nobel Prize was awarded for the first time. Although the guests and the venue have varied, many ritual elements live on to create the festivities and the distinctive magic that permeates the evening today. Also on display is a selection of photographs by the renowned photographer Anders Petersen taken at the banquet.
