Events - Norway

Due to Covid-19 virus crisis, Norway has limited all larger events to between 50 and 600 spectators depending on the type of event. Some websites might still show current dates, but it has to be expected that they will be either cancelled, moved out or changed to a different kind of event, e.g. online.
