This triangular twinning association links the three cities of Canterbury (England), Vladimir (Russia) and Bloomington-Normal, Illinois (USA).
It has been active for well over 30 years, with the aim of fostering cultural, educational and business links between the different countries. This is done through a rich programme of social events, open talks and occasional visits. The Association has no political or religious bias.
The Association is supported by Canterbury City Council and its Honorary Patrons, the Lord Mayor of Canterbury and the Bishop of Dover, the Bishop in Canterbury.
