Twinning Town Evening
Did you know Bridgwater has 6 twin towns. La Ciotat in France, Homberg in Germany, Uherske Hradists in the Czech Republic, Marsa in Malta, Priverno in Italy and Camacha on the Portuguese island of Madeira. Each year, at the same time as the Quayside Festival, all the twinning towns get together for a weeklong celebration of internationalism culminating in an evening of music and chat alongside presentations of what each twin town has done this year.
We had a great evening watching some films, listening to some songs and joining in the conversation’s with our international partners and looking forward to when we can all meet again back in the real world.
