Welcome to the Bristol Hannover Council in the middle of Anniversary Year

Thank you for visiting us at such a special time in our history! This year marks the 75th anniversary of the establishment of Bristol's Twinning with Hannover.

The link between Bristol and Hannover is one of the oldest twinnings between Britain and Germany! Set up in 1947, the Council has been facilitating exchanges of citizens every year, holds cultural and social events, welcomes and assists groups visiting Bristol from Hannover.  You can read more on the history of the Twinning or see our news page for a report on the visit here in July of our Hannover friends.

The schedule of events for Anniversary Year was prepared to match the 70th 'birthday' celebrations in 2017 when Bristol celebrated 70 years of twinning with Hannover and Bordeaux, France. For all the stories about a year of celebrations, take a look at the BHB70 page, the official 70th anniversary website.

Please look through our ongoing and completed projects or visit our gallery to learn a  little more about Hannover or see what we've been up to. It's easy to become a member of the BHC using the form available on the membership page.  If you have any questions for the BHC about the twinning please get in touch.

Bristol Hannover Council is a member of the Bristol International Twinnings Association
