Clarion Hotel® Malmö Live – “Julfadern”

This year, it’s 50 years since the classic movie Gudfadern (The Godfather) premiered. And we’ve decided to celebrate that with an unforgettable Christmas show with an Italian theme – get ready for Julfadern!
When can I see it? The show is being performed from 14-17 December 2022.
How much does it cost and what’s included? Tickets cost 1298 SEK/person on 14-15 December, and 1398 SEK/person on 16-17 December. The price includes an apéritif, a Christmas buffet with Italian flavours created by TV chef Sandra Mastios, as well as entertainment by Cornelius Löfmark, Nadia Hamouchi and Elton Bolton.
In case you’re planning a late night and are looking for a place nearby to stay overnight, we offer discounted rates for guests attending the show.
