Twin town visitors coming to Kettering next week

Foreign friends will visit Buckingham Palace, unveil a memorial plaque and go for a night at the dogs when they come over on a twin town trip next week.

Kettering will host visitors from its German twin town, Lahnstein, for a week from Tuesday.

Local families will house the Germans while they are over.

Kettering Twinning Committee has organised a packed schedule of events for the visitors.

The day after arriving they will head to Buckingham Palace in London.

In the evening DJ Bill Burton will put on a disco at Kettering Conference Centre.

The visitors will also go to Peterborough, where they will tour the historic cathedral before heading to the greyhound stadium for the evening.
