Malvern & Bagneres de Bigorre Twinning Association
Home About Bagnères Opportunities for all About MBTA Events




MBTA is a voluntary organisation established by Malvern Town Council to promote twinning activities between Malvern and Bagnères-de-Bigorre, a traditional spa town in the foothills of the French Pyrenees.


We exist to promote friendship and understanding, to encourage commercial activity and to establish social, cultural and educational links within our communities.


We do not currently receive any external funding and are therefore entirely dependent on members’ subscriptions and fund-raising activities.


MBTA can help you to experience new opportunities or to indulge your favourite activities in a new setting. We can make the connections for you as an individual or as part of a group.


For a small annual fee you can become a Friend of MBTA. Being a Friend will enable you to enjoy a programme of French-themed social events taking place throughout the year and to participate in any organised visits. Friends also receive a quarterly Newsletter which contains news from Malvern and Bagnères .
