Dancin’ Oxford at the Bürgerfest Celebration

 2022 marks the 75th anniversary of the twinning of two great and beloved cities – Oxford and Bonn.  To celebrate this very special occasion, the Oxford-Bonn Link as well as the Oxford City Council have planned a citizens festival, or Bürgerfest, on 18 June.

To celebrate, we’re honoured to have been able to programme a number of dance acts to mark this long friendship.

The event starts at 11.30 am on 18 June on a big stage at Gloucester Green.  Our dance events start from around 1pm and finishes at around 5pm.

Come along and join in this joyous celebration of friendship.
