We are twinned with Le Mans in France and Paderborn in Germany.  This relationship means that we host the International Town Twinning Civic Visit every three years and arrange a programme of events for the delegations from each town.

Benefits of town twinning

  • it gives us the opportunity to discuss important issues
  • we develop long standing friendships that continue to flourish today
  • adults and children are able to participate in exchanges – one of the most long standing ones has been the international Youth Philharmonic Orchestra exchange visits

Bolton Twinning Association
