"The Dresscollection of Helger" at Børglum Monastary

Børglum Kloster has the pleasure of being able to present:
the fabulous costumes for Anne Marie Helger's solo shows, designed by Lars Andersen.
The costumes are on display in "Hestestalden", where you also find "props & sets" collected by the artist Erik Peitersen and used during the adaptation of "Ludvig og julemanden" ("Ludvig and Santa Claus").

Børglum Monastery - the historic centre of Vendsyssel with impressive 13th century cathedral. Access to 3000m2 historical and artistic exhibition on Stygge Krumpen and Chr. Michael Rottbøll.
In 2011 the abbey was setting for TV2's advent calendar tv- series "Ludvig and Santa Claus" - see the exhibition in the abbey.

The Boerglum monastery was built from 1035 to 1220 by Augustiner munks. Later it was the Praemonstratenser munks who lived at the abbey. The Boerglum abbey worked as a monastery for munks until the reformation in 1536, where it became crown lands, and from 1536 to 1669 the yard was runned by royal selected vassals until it was passed into private ownership.
The Boerglum monastery has been rebuilt in 1650 and in 1750, latest by royal masterbuilder Laurids de Thura. Today it is Anne and Hans Rotboell who live in the old buildings together with their family, They are 6th and 7th generation of the Rottboell family who owns the Boerglum monastery.

Mr. and Mrs. Roetboell have opened the church for the public and they have as well opened several exhibitions at the monastery and the manor house. Furthermore, during the summer period there are several artists who show their arts there.
