Welcome to the website of the Malvern-Bagnères Twinning Association (MBTA).


MBTA is a voluntary organisation established by Malvern Town Council in 2016 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.


Although the Town Council holds a small contingency fund on our behalf, we are essentially entirely dependent on members’ subscriptions and fund-raising activities for our operation.


[See further detail under the sections Friends and MBTA Social Events]


Since 2016 MBTA has already helped over 200 participants to take part in memorable twinning activities and exchanges, both here and in Bagnères.


An annual subscription will allow you to become a Friend of MBTA. As a Friend you will be able 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 seasonal Newsletter which contains news from Malvern and Bagnères.
