Plans are underway to attract other partner towns to include those that would appeal to a diverse range of Prestonians, making twinning more relevant and accessible to a larger number of citizens. 

Preston Twinning Partnership is funded almost entirely by Preston Council. The intention is to develop additional sources of income and to become self-funding.

Some of our personal and professional relationships have lasted for decades and we are always pleased to welcome visitors from our twin towns to Preston. It is an opportunity to renew friendships and promote Preston to an international audience. We are also welcomed with open arms when we visit our twin towns.

Chairman, Preston Twinning Partnership
