Worcester is twinned with the communities of Kleve in Germany, Le Vesinet in France and Worcester, Massachusetts in the USA.

In 2006 Worcester entered into a friendship agreement with Vernon, in France where the Worcestershire regiment established a bridgehead in August 1944, which led to the liberation of Northern France and the Low Countries. 

In July 2010 Worcester City Council approved a new twinning arrangement with Ukmerge, Lithuania. 

 

The Worcester Male Voice Choir had for some time been planning a concert tour to visit our links in France as part of the WWI commemorations.

In June 2018 five members of Worcester Twinning Association and two former Mayors of Worcester joined them on their short, but action packed concert tour to Vernon and Gouzeaucourt. This also coincided with the official inauguration of a new street in Vernon, named "rue de Worcester", which is round the corner from "rue Bonaparte" and "avenue Churchill". This is in honour of the soldiers from the Worcestershire Regiment, who helped to liberate Vernon at the end of WWII in August 1944.
