Twinning York -Dijon
York's twinning with Dijon will be celebrating
its 70th Anniversary in 2023.
The Alliance Française de York is an active player of the York-Dijon Twinning Group, which comprises a voluntary and informal group of people who live and/or work in or near York, who wish to encourage, support and foster York’s twinning events with Dijon.
A group of York Citizens, including the Lord Mayor of York, Members of the York-Dijon Twinning Group, The u3a Dijon-York Group, the Alliance Francaise de York, and others with connections with Dijon, have just visited Dijon to help celebrate the 70th anniversary of the York-Dijon Twinning, which began in 1953.
Whilst there, they took part in various events, including Dijon’s annual ceremony on 11th September to mark its liberation from German occupation in 1944.
We are very grateful to our contacts in Dijon for putting together a programme of events and activties to support this visit.
