British Ambassador John Marshall´s social media project about the strong ties between UK and Luxembourg has been transformed into a touring exhibition.

The exhibition can be visited this week in the Bierger Center in Place Guillaume in the city centre from Monday, the 10th to the Friday, the 18th of July, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.

The exhibition, consisting of 23 banners, looks at links between Luxembourg and the United Kingdom. After a preview at the Ambassador’s Residence it will be seen in schools, museums and communes across Luxembourg over the next year before travelling to the University of Sheffield in May 2018.

It started as a series of tweets by Ambassador John Marshall about the links between Luxembourg and the UK using the hashtag #LuxUKLinks. Many were about the historical ties but soon highlighted economic, cultural and community links between the two countries and the momentous events and extraordinary individuals who have brought the two countries together over the centuries.

If you can’t make it this week to the City Centre, the exhibition can be seen on the following dates:

22nd- 29th of September in Hesperange

4th- 11th of October in Strassen

14th of October Drai Echelen Museum Night

Students visiting the Luxembourg Students’ Fair on 9 and 10 November will also be able to see a selection of the banners at the British stall.
