A week of concerts are taking place to mark the 20th anniversary of the musical partnership between Doncaster and its twin town Herten.

The special musical celebration is to mark the milestone of musical, cultural and social collaborations between the Doncaster Youth Jazz Association and the Erich Klausener School in Herten, Germany.

The events also mark the 25th Anniversary of the signing of the European Partnership Charter between Doncaster and Herten,

A busy programme of performances and workshops by the EKS Big Swing Band has been arranged at seven schools in the borough.

The celebrations will culminate in a performance at CAST on Thursday at 7.30pm, eaturing the EKS Big Swing Band, directed by Thomas Vennes, and the Doncaster Youth Swing Orchestra and the Doncaster Youth Stageband, directed by John Ellis.
