Christmas Market Visit to Les Herbiers

Notification of cancellation Saturday 9th September
Newtown Twinning is very sorry to have to inform you all that our proposed Christmas visit will sadly not be running due to low numbers.
We hope to visit Les Herbiers again in the near future and will keep you informed of all future events and visits.
Many thanks for your continued support and we look forward to meeting again soon.


Our proposed December 2023 visit to Les Herbiers will include visits to local seasonal events such as the spectacular Marché de Noël au Château de Tiffauges and the La Grande parade de Noël aux Herbiers. In keeping with our usual exchange experience, you will be hosted by a French family arranged through the Comité de jumelage du Pays des Herbiers.

We are now in a position to give you more details of the travelling times. We will be leaving Newtown on Thursday the 30th November 2023 at 12 midnight to catch the 9.10 sailing from Dover to Calais which docks at 11.40am French Time and would hopefully arrive in Les Herbiers at 7.30pm on Friday 1st December.

For the return we will be leaving Les Herbiers at 8.00am on Monday 4th December for the 6.05pm sailing, getting back to Newtown approx. 1.00am Tuesday morning.
The cost of the trip will be £250 pp. If we are able to increase numbers then the cost per person will be reduced accordingly.
We still have a number of seats still available on the coach so if you are interested in joining us, please can we ask you to respond to this email and express your commitment ASAP? We will then require deposits early September 2023.

If you are keen to join us on this visit then please can we ask you to contact us no later than 5pm on Friday 8th September 2023.
