The Bristol Bordeaux Partnership in collaboration with Colourful Minds, organised free arts and crafts activities for children at UPFest. Children made shadow puppets based on the Bordeaux coat of arms and also made their own Legion d’Honneur, France’s highest award which was presented to Madame Arlette Izac for her lifetime’s support to the Bordeaux Bristol twinning. Over 300 children took part over the two days and the results were amazing.
