The proposed visit dates for 2022 are as follows:
Niebull to Malmesbury: Thursday 22 to Tuesday 27 September;
This visit will celebrate the cultural links with our Twin towns and will take place at the same time as The Flying Monks Art Trail 2022. Work of artists from both Gien and Niebull will be be on display alongside our local Malmesbury artists and will form part of our joint Twinning Cultural Celebration.
Malmesbury to Gien: Thursday 21 July to Tuesday 26 July.
The date has been changed to coincide with Gien’s Comice Agricole, which will take place from Sat 23rd July-Sun 24th July. This is a large agricultural celebration during which many farms open their doors to the public and there are parades and exhibitions throughout the town.
We also hope to exchange the embroideries, depicting aspects of local flora and fauna which embroiderers in both Gien and Malmesbury have been hard at work completing throughout the past year. We look forward to seeing the completed work on display in our respective Town Halls.
