As Coronation fever reaches its peak, members of BBTA continue to enjoy other ways of forging friendly international relationships with our counterparts in Brunswick and among our like-minded compatriots. We are planning many social activities for the coming months, and among these are the walk round Prior Park Garden (which was postponed to 22nd May) and a visit to the Theatre Royal to see BODS performing “Guys and Dolls”. This has been well-reviewed in the local press and we are looking forward to an entertaining show. BODS have previously visited Brunswick to take part in the Kulturnacht, and this year some young musicians from Bath Spa University will be demonstrating their talents at this lively festival on 17th June. A group of Bath Bridge players will also be visiting Brunswick at the end of May to take part in several tournaments, meeting some of the friends who first came to Bath in 2016, and exploring Brunswick and the surrounding area.
Our monthly online book club with members of the DEG continues to be an enjoyable chance to discuss some interesting books and to exchange news. The May session will discuss “Lessons in Chemistry”. The BBTA chair will also be leading a discussion on a newly re-published East German novel for the German Society in June.
Members and friends are always welcome to join us in these activities, or at BBTA meetings – the next one of which is on Thursday 25th May, and will once again be held in the Guildhall. For further details of how to become involved please contact our secretary on: email@example.com
