THE 20th anniversary of a town twinning link will be celebrated this weekend.

The Stevenage World Forum is staging an evening of entertainment at the Gordon Craig Theatre to celebrate the Stevenage-Kadoma Link, which was formed in August 1989 when representatives from both towns signed a Declaration of Friendship.

The music and dance event, Celebrate!!!, on Saturday is the culmination of a series of special events to mark the anniversary of the link with the Zimbabwean town.

Many of the local performers involved are connected to the link, or to Africa.
