Other theatrical productions will include performances by Art-Színtér, Játékszín, the Csiky Gergely Theatre of Kaposvár and the Nézőművészeti Kft.

The Kaláka Versudvar and poet János Lackfi’s poetry improvisation sessions will be held for the 13th consecutive year, they said.
The Catholic church in Kapolcs will be the venue for classical concerts, featuring performances by Balázs “Dongó” Szokolay, the viola section of the Danubia Orchestra and the Budapest String Orchestra.
