Town Twinning

Leighton-Linslade is twinned with Coulommiers, a town some 40 miles east of Paris and also with Titisee-Neustadt in the High Street Black Forest region of Southern Germany.

 

 

Town Twinning

The link with Coulommiers began in 1958 and was renewed in 1982 whilst the Titisee-Neustadt link was established in 1991.

Each country has its own twinning association that helps to co-ordinate various events.  A popular event held in Titisee-Neustadt is ‘Fasnet’ which occurs a week before Lent and is an explosion of fun and festivity.

Coulommiers hosts an annual International Cheese and Wine Festival usually held in March and a Christmas Fayre, both of which have attracted coach loads of visitors in past years.

Leighton-Linslade has invited guests from its twin towns to the annual summer carnival and more recently to Linslade Canal Festival.
