Visit From Brunswick

By on May 6, 2024

Observant members of the public may have wondered why the German flag was flying in Bath recently.  It marked the official visit of Dr Thorsten Kornblum, the Lord Mayor of Brunswick.  This was the first such visit for over ten years, and Dr Kornblum was hosted by the Mayor of Bath, Cllr Dine Romero, in celebration of over fifty years of official twinning links between our two cities, links which have seen many generations of Bath residents visit their Brunswick friends. Dr Kornblum was accompanied by some of Brunswick’s councillors, the president of the Technical University, and by representatives of the Chamber of Crafts, and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, with the aim of fostering academic and commercial links between our two cities.  The photos show our guests and members of the public at a Civic Reception in the Guildhall, and our guests visiting Bath Spa University. Dr Kornblum and Professor Ittel, President of the Technische Universität, also had the opportunity to meet members of the public at an event hosted by Bath German Society at BRLSI. We all look forward to our next visitors from Brunswick in June, when the Cathedral Youth Choir will perform in Bath...

In January, members and friends enjoyed a reception attended by the Mayor of Bath.  It was an opportunity to thank everyone for their involvement with twinning in the past year and to discuss plans for the coming year.  These currently include proposals for about seven different groups from Brunswick and (beyond) to visit Bath.  It’s going to be another busy year! Normal activities continue with our regular monthly committee meeting on 8th February, followed by our online Book Club with members of the Brunswick DEG.  New participants are always welcome and can get in touch under “Contact us”.

November and December saw the Bath Christmas Market again, attracting nearly half a million visitors.  Our Twinning Association was represented, selling various products from Brunswick, as well as handing out information about our twin city.  It was very rewarding to talk to so many members of the public with a link to Germany, and even to Brunswick itself.  On the 6th December, St Nicholas Day, the Mayor of Bath welcomed members of Bath German Society and the Ukele band- Uke Can’t Be Serious – to sing German carols and entertain the public.  Our thanks to everyone who participated in the...

Visit by Münsterchor of St Aegidien

By on Oct 23, 2023

We were very sorry to wave goodbye to the members of the Münsterchor of St Aegidien in Brunswick on Sunday, 22nd October.  They had spent a week in Bath, visiting some of our local tourist attractions, and giving a recital in the Abbey, as well as taking part in services in Salisbury and Wells Cathedrals and in St John’s the Evangelist in Bath.  Many members of the public were able to enjoy their fine singing, and the playing of their organist, who had to master four different instruments in a very short time. At a reception on 16th October, they were officially welcomed to Bath by the Mayor, Cllr Dine Romero, who had had the pleasure of hearing the choir sing at the opening of the Bath Garten in Brunswick in August.  Our thanks to all our friends and members who made this visit a notable...
