One-time free or good deal events

A while ago, I started a thread on good deals in Switzerland.

[Days out] Good deals / free in Switzerland

By now, this thread has grown quite a bit, both relating to one time events (or yearly) and things one can do any time.

It is a bit cumbersome to go through all the outdated events if you want to do something on any day, so I thought I should start a spin-off specifically for one-time events, rather than things you can do any time.

I am currently aware of:

- Showings of opera performances in Arthouse Cinemas in Zurich (see more info on the event I created for Jan. 20, 2012). So, you get to go to the Milano opera (sort of) for the price of a movie ticket.

Re: One-time free or good deal events

I just read that there will be a free choir concert in Jona in the Catholic church, on January 20, 2013, at 5pm. For details: http://www.krj.ch/index.php?aktuell_jon

The choir is part of the Europa Cantat program, where choirs and singers from all over Switzerland come together, once a year. I participated in today's program, where we rehearsed and performed John Rutter's Gloria with 150 singers, and it was just great.

Re: One-time free or good deal events

On June 15, starting at 8pm, the Summernight's Ball will be held in Zurich Main Station. There will be a live orchestra and a big band, and the main hall of the station will be decorated. When I went last year, there was a proper dancefloor, and the people dancing represented all levels of dress-up, from the gown to the accidental attendee in t-shirt and jeans.

One could make this an EF event, if there was interest.
