Godmanchester and Huntingdon are twinned with Wertheim in Germany, Salon de Provence in France, Szentendre in Hungary and Gubbio in Italy. The principal aim of the Twinning Association is to further the good relationship between the towns of Huntingdon and Godmanchester and our four twin towns.

We do this by encouraging the formation of friendships between the different nationalities, both by individuals and groups, and especially between young people. We have an ambitious programme of exchanges and visits, ranging from quite small individual exchanges to very major festivals of sports and culture, in which teams of young people from all 6 towns compete every year, both here and abroad. Dancers, choirs, musicians and other performers travel between all the towns to entertain and to join in local events. See below for more details of our upcoming events.

While the Twinning Association is not a civic organisation we are recognised and supported by our Town Councils. The majority of our funding comes from events which we organise over the course of the year.
