THE LENIN AWARD CEREMONY 2020 IS POSTPONED AND MERGED WITH THE 2021 AWARD CEREMONY
In the current circumstances and with regard to the Public Health Agency’s recommendations, we choose to postpone this year’s Lenin Award again. The 2020 award ceremony, which was to be held on 21 November, is now being moved and merged with next year’s award ceremony on Saturday 8 May 2021 at Varberg Theatre.

If you have booked at Hotell Gästis, Hotell Havanna or only party participation, you must contact the hotel yourself and book yourself at the 2021 award ceremony if you wish to participate!
The 2020 Lenin Award laureate is Kajsa Ekis Ekman and the 2020 Robespierre Prize goes to David Ritschard. The laureates for 2021 will be disclosed in January. The award ceremony takes place at Varberg Theatre on Saturday 8 May at 13:00 and afterwards, the Jan Myrdal Society has its annual general meeting in the same premises. 2019 Lenin Award laureate professor Göran Therborn will make a speech to Kajsa Ekis Ekman and 2019 Robespierre Award laureate Daria Bogdanska to David Ritschard.
