 The Guild received an invitation from the Court to send a representative to Castrum Doloris in Christiansborg Slotskirke with a following gathering in "Fløjlsrummet" in Christiansborg Slot. Chief Bencher Niels Voss Hansen participated in the ceremony.

 It was a very beautiful and moving solemnity.

Spar Nord 1In the usual good blend of seriousness and humor could Christian The Fourth´s Guild the 16th of December 2017 celebrate its first 75 years.

What was originally a protest against the occupation forces, has through the years developed into one of Aalborg´s most well-known culture- and tourist-attractions – yet still with a good mixture of seriousness and good humor as a leading principle. Christian The Fourth´s Guild could the 16th of December celebrate its 75th years anniversary of its foundation in 1942 in the dark years of the Second World War.>>>

Humrlegat Aalborghus 2017 1The setting was perfect and could scarcely be better when chief-bencher Niels Voss Hansen, thirst-master Palle Bjørnstrup and troubadour Kjeld Trudslev, all from Christian The Fourth´s Guild appeared in Aalborghus Gymnasium in order to donate a Good Spirit-prize to Mads Aaby Gaunby.

The gymnasium – which is an upper secondary school – was already in a festive mood as this day also was the gymnasium´s anniversary. In this connection it was a strange coincidence that Christian The Fourth´s Guild the following day could celebrate its 75th years anniversary.>>>
