Successful twinning project for West Cheshire College students
Music students from West Cheshire College welcomed fellow music students from Ellesmere Port’s twin town of Reutlingen.
The visiting students, who are members of the band Bad Liver, took part in a variety of events with the college’s music practice students, including going to a gig at the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool, attending a music festival, a recording session at West Cheshire College as well as performances at Telford’s Warehouse and Phoenix Club in Chester.
The visit comes after West Cheshire College students visited Reutlingen last summer to perform at the town’s Kurt Festival and the Kaisserhalle music venue.
Martin Holmes, music tutor from West Cheshire College, said: “It was great to welcome the students from Reutlingen to Ellesmere Port.
“Our students had a great time when we visited them last year so we simply wanted to return the favour with our hospitality.
“We have a lot of musical culture here and we wanted to showcase this to the visiting students as well as our students, which is why we took them to iconic places such as the Cavern Club.
“All of the students enjoyed their performances at local venues and they really benefited from it. We really enjoyed strengthening our links with the town and we are already planning our next visit.”
