York and Münster have been twin cities since 1957. Over the years this bond has inspired meetings of people from both cities sharing their culture, creating a new understanding and forming lasting friendships.
The York-Münster Twinning Association holds social events throughout the year and organises visits to Münster each year. Every two years we also welcome a group of about 40 residents from Münster to York for a week. We meet at the Civic reception at the Mansion House and hold a dinner at the St Edward's Community Hall in Dringhouses. During this time we visits to various places around and within York together.
We have over 30 members and meet regularly throughout the year roughly every 2 months. Over the past 2 years meeting have been held in the West Offices of York City Council.
