Basildon Twinning members attend the annual Stadtfest in Heiligenhaus and the Christmas Market in Meaux to promote Basildon, and Basildon businesses and produce.

Sports tours are organised between the three towns and in addition, there is a regular football tour in May, to Heiligenhaus. We have sent teams and individuals to rugby, darts, canoeing, handball, athletics and tennis events. We are happy to help any club to organise a competition or an event.

Cultural exchanges are encouraged and aided. Bands, choirs, acting groups and artists have all exchanged visits, and shared gigs and exhibitions. Basildon Twinning will assist groups, families and individuals with plans for tourist visits.
