Hetedhét (Behind the beyond) Toy Festival

Hetedhét (Behind the beyond) Toy Festival

2017. május 27. - 2017. május 28.

Giant puppets in the theatre? Witches in the Városháza (Town Hall) Square? Fish at the Orb? Anything could happen. Let’s put on our seven-league boots and celebrate children’s day with absorbing, creating, relaxing, whirling, musical-noisy games.

During the last weekend of May the city centre becomes a giant playground. On these days we celebrate children’s day together and the birthday of the Hetedhét Toy Museum. On these two days there is a huge toy festival in the world of tales with real birthday surprises. The inner city becomes a giant playground, the museum turns into an actual toy factory where children can become toy-makers themselves or can just simply play. Recommended for ages 0-99!

Royal Days - Coronation Festivities

Royal Days - Coronation Festivities

2017. augusztus 18. - 2017. augusztus 20.

This festival of all-arts evokes the figures of kings crowned here at one time through a colourful medieval cavalcade. The popular giant-puppets return, the inner city lights up in the evening and the pages of the moving historic cartoons projected onto the walls of houses come to life. It is unique, grandiose, majestic!

Those visiting in August can see a real miracle: the Coronation Festive Plays which take us back to the former coronation city. The highlights of the event are the ceremonial plays, the medieval market cavalcade, the procession of the giant puppets and the Street of Lights. The Coronation Ceremonial Plays evokes the coronation by the interpretation of almost 900-year-old ceremonial texts on the monumental stage built at the National Memorial Site amongst a grandiose setting with modern lighting and visual technology. At the Városháza (Town Hall) Square a medieval city is built within the city which presents the surroundings not only by factual objectiveness but also presents the life of times gone by with traditionalists, actors and market-men. In the medieval cavalcade the giant five metre tall royal puppets appear from time to time evoking the royal centuries. In 2015 the collection of giant puppets featuring kings and families of the Árpád House received an additional two new figures. After Géza, Sarolt, St. Stephen (István), Gisela, St. Emeric (Imre), Bishop Astrik, St. Ladislaus (László), Géza I, Salomon, Adelhaid and Piroska, Coloman (Kálmán) the Learned crowned in Székesfehérvár 920 years ago and his brother Prince Álmos joined the collection of 13 pieces. The Street of Light is the biggest moving historic cartoon of Europe that tells a story about the life and legend of the crowned king.
