The Blue Lady's Table: Your dreams of the Future - Holstebro Festive Week 2024

The Blue Lady's Table: Your dreams of the Future - Holstebro Festive Week 2024

The Blue Lady's Table occurs at the library every day during the Festive Week from 09.00-21.00.

At The Blue Lady's Table it's all about dreaming; there is time and room for you to write and draw for a while, no matter if you're young, old or in between. You also have the possibility of folding your very own dream-boat for you to take home with you.

What has that got to do with The Blue Lady?

Well, The Blue Lady watches over your dreams. Her oldest confidants are the doves, Nyt and Not; they make sure to maintain control over peoples' dreams, and that everything is written down, so that The Blue Lady can take care of the future.

By The Blue Lady's Table you can write your owm dreams for the doves, and then they'll hang them up on the dreaming-tree with the white branches next to The Blue Lady. 

A lot of dreams wants to come true in the future, but it is only when you trulu believe in them, that they can become real. Write or draw your dreams of the future, and then the doves and The Blue Lady will help them onward!

The Blue Lady is showing herself for the first time in 750 years - but why now? Could it be because the stream is overflowing, the winds that have changed paths or because the city is growing rapidly? No one knows. What we do know is that more and more people are asking what kind of city the streams flows by - and that the story of The Blue Lady is told again and again in new ways:

But who even is The Blue Lady?

There are many stories about her. Some say that she has always lived her quiet life in the stream, as long as one might remember. Others say that she is the one who makes sure that the 104 year old stream stays alive. That she is the water under the bridge, that makes us dream of the future.

There are stories, that she was called Åsepigen as a little girl, and that there was a dragon in the stream, who protected her. Åsepigen was capable of seeing the grass growing and hearing mosquitoes bite. She was, in other words, one with nature, and thereby nothing like the brave and blinded knights who tried building bridges over the stream over the years. The knights were obsessed with building, and had no time to think of nature - that's why the dragon and The Blue Lady protected the stream, so that no one could ever build. But one day a worthy knight came along, that both understood dragons and stream-girls, he is the one we know today as Ridder Holst. The dragon has been given many namea since, and one of them is Læssie; if you are lucky, you might meet him by The Blue Lady's Table at the library.

It is told, that one cannot see The Blue Lady unless you look very closely into the stream and past ones own reflection. But if you're lucky, you'll also be able to see her in the streets of Holstebro at speciel occasions during the Festive Week.
