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.
Singer/songwriter Nathan Watson, who attended Collenswood School in Stevenage, will be bringing his distinctive style of soul and jazz/funk fusion to the multicultural arts event.
Nathan, who went on to study music at North Hertfordshire College when he left school, is busy working on his debut album. His first single, Loveline, has just been released.
