Twinning with Palestine

The Britain - Palestine Twinning Network - "promoting twinning and friendship links"

Activities for the network in 2011 include * Women's visit - March * Twinning Conference in Palestine - April * Visits to Palestine April and October * Conference in Liverpool - November.

Seventh Twinning with Palestine Conference - Liverpool Saturday 26th November 2011.

Venue; The Casa Bar, 29 Hope Street. L1 9BQ. Followed by a social event in the evening. Programme.

The conference is a special part of our year - a chance to learn lots from other people and groups and reinvigorate our own twinning activities. This year we're grateful to the Liverpool-Bil'in group for working hard on a good venue, offering to prepare food and sorting out a benefit which sounds as if it will be excellent.

This years conference will be held at The Casa on Hope Street, just round the corner from the University in central Liverpool. The Casa is a pub set up by the Liverpool dockers many years ago and has a good reputation as a radical meeting place. It's within walking distance of the train station.

The venue is walking distance from the station , about 20mins. Take Lime St exit and walk down to the main road, Lime St. Turn left and walk until you come to Hardman St. Turn left here until you see Hope St on the left. The Casa is a little way on the right next to a restaurant called the Side Door. or, a taxi ride would be very cheap and easy. The number 86 or 80 bus goes along Hardman St from Lime St.

BOOKING is via the website twinningwithpalestine.net until 20th November (please e-mail us with your details). Or else on the door (more expensive).

Advance registration - FREE for members of groups that are formally members of the Twinning Network (note, your group can join even now! New group membership is free, too). FREE - students, Others - £5.

TRAVEL TO LIVERPOOL Cheap trains if you book now! Some deals are really cheap. The venue is about 20 mins walk or 5 mins in a taxi from the station.

STAYING IN LIVERPOOL The Liverpool group has offered to help if people tell them they need accommodation by the end of October (if they can).

BENEFIT IN THE EVENING Will be worth staying for!!!
