Twinned With Libourne for Over 40 Years
We are a friendly group of local
residents who meet regularly. We
participate in social events and
exchange visits to Libourne in south
west France. Our aim is to foster
good relationships with our French
neighbours and promote a greater
cultural awareness - a real entente
Keynsham (population 16,000) is midway between Bristol and Bath, on the confluence of the Rivers Avon & Chew. It is about 2 hours by train from London. Libourne (population 22,500) on the River Dordogne is 38km from Bordeaux and is surrounded by miles of vineyards, the backbone of the economy. It has an ancient Town Hall & mediaeval centre with modern shops inside the old stone buildings but the suburbs are modern. Paris is about 3 hours away by TGV.
40 Years Of Twinning
In 2017 Keynsham and Libourne celebrate 40 years since the two towns were first linked through a twinning charter. To commemorate the event Keynsham will be hosting the people from Libourne in June, and a full programme of events is currently being developed. This will include live music events as part of Keynsham Music Festival, coach and boat trips, games, free time for the visitors to spend with their host families, as well as some formal events marking this important milestone.
