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.
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.
