On Thursday the 21st July 2016 the Lord Mayor of Bristol unveiled a cabinet in the Central Library to commemorate the twinnings that Bristol has with cities across the world. The cabinet is set to remain in the library next to the Twin Cities Reference Section and will be changed every three months. It contains objects that were gifted by our twinned towns to represent the culture of their city, such as a sculpture from Hannover.
Many people who have played key roles within these partnerships were present, and it was great to hear from them about how these links between cities have benefited Bristol.
