Over the weekend of 4-5 October Lichfield will be welcoming 120 guests from its twin towns of Limburg an der Lahn, Germany, and Sainte Foy-lès-Lyon, France.
This is an event which Lichfield hosts every six years, and to show off the city at its best a programme of free events has been arranged for the benefit of both Lichfield residents and its visitors.
On Saturday 4 October there will be a full day of entertainment on the Market Square, including performances by Lichfield Mysteries, the City Concert Band, Three Spires Morris, Wildfire Folk, Lichfield Singers, Team Catalyst International dance school and the Chorale Chantefable from Sainte Foy.
There will also be special stalls on the Market Square, including a food trader from Lyon. The regular Saturday Market will take place in the surrounding streets.
In the Guildhall the local history group will display their photographic archives about Lichfield, while at Speakers' Corner, at noon there will be a debate on "Being European" - followed by the quintessentially English, "Three Spires Morris" .
There will also be a contemporary art exhibition at Emporium Art Gallery.
Then on Sunday 5 October events include a special Twinning Service at Lichfield Cathedral in the morning, a twin town table tennis tournament at King Edward VI leisure centre, and various other events including a visit to the canal restoration project at 3pm on Tamworth Road.
