Do you have a spare room to host one Sinaian, from Thame’s twin town?

Thame-Sinaia Friendship Association will be welcoming four residents from Sinaia, Thame’s twin town in Romania’s Carpathian Mountains, who will be representing their town at TAL Festival between 17 and 21 October 2019.

The Association is appealing to Thame’s residents who have a spare room and are able to host one of the guests to come forward. Marius Ciortan, secretary of the Thame-Sinaia twinning group, said: “This will be a great opportunity to meet people from our twin town and find out about their lives and literary hobbies. Most of our Thamensians who hosted Sinaians in the past, have been invited to visit Sinaia and they thoroughly enjoyed their stay there. They have been made to feel so welcome! So much – that they returned to Sinaia to see their Romanian friends a few times after their first trip there.”

The group of Sinaians will give a talk about Queen Marie of Romania, grand-daughter of Queen Victoria. Queen Marie was a great art collector, writer of important memoir writings, as well as poems and stories for children. The talk will take place at Thame Town Hall on Sunday 20 October. Tickets are free and places can be booked via TAL’s website: https://talfestival.org/

All four Sinaia guests are members of ASPE, the socio-cultural association which supports the twinning between Thame and Sinaia and is one of the main liaisons in Sinaia of Thame-Sinaia Friendship Association. Octavia Ghiocel-Floricica, is a Romanian language and literature teacher, Chinese culture expert, and contributor to Sinaia Excelsior newspaper. Felicia Mirza, an English language and literature
teacher, ASPE vice-president, contributor to Sinaia Excelsior newspaper, will be representing Sinaia for the second time at TAL, following her participation in 2017 with “Sinaia – Land of the Elites”, event lead by Dan Manea, local architect. Cecilia Francu, is one of ASPE vice-presidents, member of the
theatre, literary club and choir of ASPE. Finally,
Marius Bratosin, ASPE President, founding member of Sinaia Photo Club, editor of the Excelsior newspaper, will be looking also to forge links with Thame’s Camera Club.
