Folkets Hus & Park, Sundsvall (the peoples’ house & park)
Rock, jazz, dance, concerts, parties, movie theatres, business meetings…you find it all here!
The Folkets Hus och Park ”movement” in Sweden started around the 19th turn of the century. The purpose was to give people a place for meetings, pleasure and enjoyment. Over 100 years later, our purpose is still the same. We have two facilities in Sundsvall; 1) Folkets Hus and 2) Folkets Park with Tonhallen and it’s park area.
