Our aim is to help citizens and organisations in Fareham and Vannes to conduct cultural exchange visits. We assist in liaison between Fareham and Vannes organisations, and we conduct a French Conversation Group.

Vannes is a medium-sized town in Brittany, NW France. It lies at the head of an ‘inland’ sea, the Gulf of Morbihan. The whole area is rich in maritime traditions.
Exchange visits currently take place between sailing clubs, musicians, doctors, table-tennis players, as well as groups of individuals drawn from each town’s conversation groups. Some exchanges take place at a more formal level involving each town’s councillors. On the ‘how twinning works’ page you can read about members’ experiences of twinning with Vannes, and how to join in.
The Association is always on the lookout for new opportunities for twinning with Vannes. If your group thinks it might wish to meet and share with like-minded folk in Vannes, do get in touch with one of our Officers or use our contact form.
2016 was the 50th anniversary of Fareham – Vannes twinning. A party of Vannes civic officials and citizens visited Fareham in the period 10th – 14th September to participate in the anniversary. Here’s what happened . . . .
If you would like to brush-up or try-out your French prior to an exchange visit, our French Conversation Group meets twice each month in Titchfield.
The Association is run by a Committee of Officers.
