As an extra spice for the festive day, the Koldinghus Order was also presented, and created with the red robes is a special atmosphere around the horse show at Staldgården, and in the castle courtyard.

“Who are you”? – was probably the most asked question from the citizens and guests who had come up with a glimpse of the princess, who also had her two daughters, Alexandra and Nathalie as well as her grandson Ingrid.

Første kvinde i Ordensmagten

Ved en lille ceremoni, i Bibliotekssalen på Koldinghus, blev informationschef på Koldinghus Nanna Ebert indsat som det første kvindelige medlem af Ordensmagten, som er bestyrelsen for Koldinghus Ordnen.

Nanna Ebert er medlem nr. 67 i Koldinghus Ordnen, som d.d. tæller 402 medlemmer. Medlemsfordelingen mht. kvinder og mænd er nogenlunde 50/50 og stormesteren konkluderede, at det derfor er helt naturligt og også i tidens ånd at kvinder får adgang til ledelsen af Koldinghus Ordnen. Han fortsatte: ”Du bliver nu det første kvindelige medlem af Ordensmagten og får det ærefulde hverv at sætte dit feminine præg på beslutningerne, i videreudviklingen og driften af Koldinghus Ordnen. Udover at indtræde i Ordensmagten, tiltræder du samtidig det ærefulde hverv at være Ordnens Tørstinspirator. Hvor det er din pligt, i tide og utide, at sætte gang i slukningen af den om sig gribende halsbrand”.

Som symbol på indsættelsen blev Nanna Ebert iført den karakteristiske røde kappe.

Festlig pop og rock i kølig slotsgård

Koldinghus Ordnen afviklede for første gang sommerorden, hvor 81 medlemmer var mødt frem til en uforglemmelig aften med Rugsted og Kreutzfeld. Arrangementet var fælles med Erhvervsklubben Koldinghus, og alt var lagt i festlige rammer i en stemningsfyldt slotsgård. Der deltog i alt ca. 380 personer i mere eller mindre varm påklædning. Der kunne nydes en lækker buffet. Veloplagte Rugsted og Kreutzfeld sørgede for veldrejede sange, der gav dejlige minder og god stemning. Det var meget koldt under den åbne himmel og kulden bed for hårdt. Koldinghus måtte derfor bruge en livline og kontaktede beredskabets frivillige personale, der mødte op med tæpper til alle gæster. Herefter lignede det mest af alt en slotsgård fyldt med munke. Mange gik hjem, men dem der holdt ud fik sig en uforglemmelig aften, der sluttede med Flashbacks populære rockmusik.

Rammerne, maden, underholdning, musik og gæster var helt i top. Nyd de medfølgende billeder, der viser et godt uddrag af en uforglemmelig og lunefuld sommeraften i kulden.

Det er simpelthen en stor fornøjelse at være en del af”.

Koldinghus Ordnen har holdt sit første medlemsmøde

Den 4. februar 2012 afholdt Koldinghus Ordnen sin første Vinterorden, hvortil alle medlemmerne var indbudt. Prisen for at deltage var så lav som 63 kr., der lige dækkede kostprisen.
Mødets indhold var meget varieret. Efter at Ordens troubadour Frede Antonsen havde blæst en Ordens-fanfare bød Ordensstormester Viggo Schantz velkommen og præsenterede Ordensmagten. Han fortalte om baggrunden for at stifte Ordnen, hvis primære formål er både at skabe veneration for Koldinghus og ambassadører for Kolding og samtidig yde støtte til sociale og kulturelle formål. Han præsenterede den arbejdsgruppe, der havde udarbejdet vedtægterne, og som havde udviklet optagelsesritualet. Det hele skulle være præget af humor og ironi.
Herefter fortalte Ordnens Slotsfoged Poul Dedenroth-Schou om de kommende aktiviteter på Koldinghus. Der var mange planer om udstillinger, der skulle følge efter den nuværende succes med PH-lamper og ikke mindst Ole Lund Kirkegaard og hans verden.
Efter denne redegørelse fulgte kroningen af Christian IV, der nu er spøgelse på Koldinghus. Kronen blev båret ind af Ceremonimester Lars P. Henriksen efterfulgt af alle Ordnens embedsmænd, der tilsammen udgør Ordensmagten. Og mens Christian IV i skikkelse af Juridikus Henrik Nøhr knælede, blev han kronet, så han ikke som spøgelse behøver at savne sit tegn på kongeværdigheden. Ceremoniens humor blev naturligvis hilst med stor morskab af forsamlingen, hvilket også var meningen.
Byfogeden i skikkelse af borgmester Jørn Pedersen fortalte levende om Kolding nu og i fremtiden. Der er store udfordringer, som man er parat til møde. Man vil gerne tiltrække flere mennesker til byen. Og etableringen af Design City og bygningen af et universitet på Grønborg-grunden er et led i denne strategi. Samtidig vil man gerne gøre Kolding kendt som en by med mange uddannelsesfaciliteter som f.eks. Designskolen, IBC og Syddansk Universitet.
Forsamlingen, der talte godt 100 personer, strakte ben og nød et glas mousserende vin. Snakken gik livligt, inden Kolding Mandskor sluttede eftermiddagen af ved meget smukt at synge adskillige sange fra deres store repertoire.
Kl. 16 sluttede Koldinghus Ordnens første medlemsarrangement. Næste medlemsarrangement bliver Rock på Slottet den 1. juni, med bl.a. musikalsk underholdning af Rugsted & Kreutzfeld. Invitation følger inden længe.
