Boddum Musikgaard – bienvenu of the classical musician.
The alternative cultural meeting with artists and musicians from all over the country including colleagues from The Royal Theater in Copenhagen.
When we replaced The Royal Theater and Copenhagen with Sydthy and the the Limfiord in 1999 it was due to the magnificent nature of Thy.
“…..The Limfiord is a richness of fiords, sounds, islands and forelands. Ridges push up. Meadows lie flat and sappy. The land towards the fiord is covered with hundreds of barrows. From Skibssted Fiord and on to Boddum Doverodde huge hills are stretching up towards Great-Thy…..” wrote the famoes danish painter Jens Søndergaard in 1942.

At that time we allready had found our wonderful homestead with field and meadow right down to the fiord. The pensioner life seamed to be guaranteed! But soon music was needed locally, the violin was shined up again and a hand was given at local demand. Soon it was also obvious that Sydthy is a little short of good halls for acoustic music so after the “do it yourself” method we transferred the hayloft pretty close to an ideal small musichall.
And in march 2012 Boddum Musikgaard celebrated 10 years anniversary with concert / arrangement nr. 25 by presenting the international known ballet-communicator and promotor Erik Aschengreenn in a special arrangement with focus on ballet and dance

Gods Little Clown, is the new musical fairy tale performance of Boddum Musikgaard.

This touching musical theater is commissioned by Boddum Musikgaard 2011 for touring performances for children and their grown-ups with obvious qualities for later reflection and talks

“Stoetteforeningen for Kulturcenter Thy”
Since the very start of the vision for Kulturcenter Thy in 2003 the idea was to create the optimal frames for a powerhouse with room and space for all kinds of cultural development – for amateurs as well as professionals, for the path-breaking international and for the near local activities. In 2006 the Society for Culturecenter Thy was established in connection with a huge festkoncert in Vestervig Church.
