Italian Weekend - 5th/6th March 2016

We invited a group of our Italian friends from Gubbio to Huntingdon on the occasion of our “Italian Evening” on March 5th, 2016.

The evening was a great success and our Italian guests seemed delighted with the 4 course Italian meal we prepared for them. They showed us some videos of Gubbio including the amazing spectacle of the “Ceri” festival held every year on May 15th. Musical entertainment with an Italian theme was provided by some members of our Twinning Association & was much appreciated by all present.

We hosted the 7 Italian visitors in our families and took them to visit Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge, including Magdalene College, where Dr Simon Stoddart showed them the venue for the Gubbio Flag-throwers' performance due to be held in September 2016. On the Friday and Sunday evenings our visitors and hosts met in Huntingdon for traditional English pub meals in the Falcon and George Hotel.

It was a great pleasure to welcome them to Huntingdon & tighten the bonds of friendship between our towns.
