At our recent meeting, the committee members of BBTA decided to go on a Bummel: to be precise – a Marktbummel! All our members and friends are cordially invited to join us on Wednesday, 8th December, to stroll round Bath’s Christmas Market and sample the range of German delicacies on offer as well as indulging in Dickensian chat about Christmases past, present and future. We will meet in York Street outside the new Toppings bookshop, (formerly the Friends’ Meeting House) at 2.00 pm.

Update On Our Events

By on Nov 1, 2021

Last Wednesday’s talk by the Lord Mayor of Brunswick, Herr Ulrich Markurth, was finally able to take place on the BRLSI Zoom platform.  The meeting was attended by the Deputy Mayor of Bath, Councillor Dr Yukteshwar Kumar, (the Mayor of Bath was indisposed) and both mayors gave some opening remarks to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of our twinning agreement, before Mayor Markurth developed the evening’s theme of “Urban Development in Braunschweig”.  The talk was well attended by members of the BBTA, Bath German Society, members of the Anglo-German Association (DEG) in Brunswick, other Brunswick ex-pats, members of the Cardiff-Stuttgart Association and of the Cheltenham-Göttingen Association, and officials of B&NES.  We are very grateful to our speakers and to the audience for making this a memorable evening. The next event we have to look forward to is Jürgen Kumlehn reading from his book “Jewish Families in Wolfenbüttel”.  This will take place on Thursday, 4th November at 19.00 UK time and is organised by the DEG. If you are interested in joining us, please contact BBTA18@hotmail.com for further...

Talk by Lord Mayor of Brunswick on 27th October

By on Oct 22, 2021

The committee of BBTA and the staff in the Mayor’s office were very disappointed that the civic visit of the Lord Mayor of Brunswick has now been cancelled, as a result of the continuing high incidence of Covid cases in this area.  The good news, however, is that he will still give his talk (in German) on “Urban Development in Braunschweig” via Zoom on 27th October, at a meeting also attended by the Mayor of Bath.  The evening is a result of co-operation between Bath German Society, the BBTA and Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, from whom details on registering for the talk are available.  Many thanks to everyone involved in these arrangements!
