Knävlingagillet 2019

When the ice breaks, us Sydskåningar go to the ball!

On March 16th we will open the doors for Knävlingagillet 2019, which this year takes place in Grand Hotel in Lund. Sydskånska Nationen’s alumni, members and friends are invited to an evening of singing and entertainment in a solemn atmosphere. After the dinner, the festivities continue with dance to big bands and more.

The Knävlingagillet was founded in 1967 by Anders Mårtensson and Catharina Markborn and is held every year at the end of the winter. The background to the ball is that Skåne’s farmers were seen once a year to settle their debts. All the peasants each had a “Knävling”, a wooden tray in which debts and receivables were engraved, in their possession, and when the debtwas settled, one held a party, Knävlingagillet.
