Twinning celebration for towns

Bridgnorth will be entertaining over 90 visitors from its twin towns of Schrobenhausen in Germany and Thiers in France over the weekend of 21 to 24 September.

Bridgnorth Twinning Association will celebrate 40 years of links with Thiers in a Town Hall ceremony on Sunday 23 September to commemorate the day in 1978 when 300 Bridgnorth residents travelled to the town to commence French links. A second partnership with Schrobenhausen was formed in 1992, and over the years, the three towns have enhanced their relationships by hosting a festival every three years. After 40 years, Bridgnorth is again hosting the festival to celebrate links between families, clubs and businesses. Highlights include a trip to the Severn Valley Railway Steam Gala and a twinning dinner at Castle Hall.

Everyone is welcome at a short concert at St Mary’s Church at 11.45am on the Sunday when singers from the three towns will be performing extracts from Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’, followed by a procession which will take the three towns’ mayors on a tour of Bridgnorth. Guests will also have an opportunity to follow the new Art Trail, and banners painted by local students and artists will be hung in the High Street to replicate the flags in the centre of Thiers.
