Culture Tram to a new route
The Culture Tram will move to a new route on Wednesday 20 June. The tram will operate under route number 5 and it will run from Töölön halli via Kamppi and Central Railway Station to Ensi Linja.
To mark the new route, HSL offers a free ride on the Culture Tram on Wednesday 20 June. There will be music by Olavi Uusivirta duo, and HSL will distribute 200 flowers for passengers.
The Culture Tram runs on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 1pm to 4pm. Live performances start at 3pm when the tram leaves the Ooppera tram stop. The stop is located at the junction of Mannerheimintie and Runeberginkatu. You can get on the tram anywhere along the route and enjoy the performances at the normal fare.
The tram offers passengers diverse cultural experiences every week. The program includes music, dance, theater and recitation. In June, the program features music by Tribaduuri and Veljekset Hämäläinen, dance artists Heidi Masalin and Virva Talonen, a taste of Helsinki Pride festival program, a video installation produced by the Distribution Centre for Finnish Media Art, and Photo Raw: Łukasz Sokół – The Most Precious Thing photo exhibition.
