Monmouth Carbonne Town Twinning
Linking with friends across the Channel.
Who We Are
Monmouth residents have enjoyed regular ‘exchange visits’, linking with friends in our French Twin Town, Carbonne, for almost 50 years.
Membership is open to all Monmouth residents – families, singles, couples, members of sports or cultural groups.
And there’s no need to be able to speak French!
What we do
Exchange Visits to Carbonne, near Toulouse, where we are welcomed into our hosts’ homes, experience French culture and visit fascinating places.
Social events in Monmouth – winetasting, barbecues, Welsh food evenings, petanque and skittles competitions.
Welcoming members of the Carbonne Twinning Association to visit Wales and see the gems of our region.
Why should I join?
The opportunities are amazing:
Experience real French Culture welcomed into the homes of our Twin Town hosts.
Personalised guided tours of the hidden gems of the Midi-Pyrenees region.
The chance for children to practise their French – setting up penfriends, families visiting families in their homes.
The chance for sport and cultural groups to meet their French counterparts for a joint competition or concert.
Fun social events in Monmouth – often with a French theme.
