Harbury is fortunate to be twinned with Samois-sur-Seine a pretty town between the forest of Fontainebleau and the river Seine. It's noted for its annual Festival de Jazz on an island in the river held in memory of the gypsy-jazz violinist Django Reinhardt. We exchange weekend visits every year: individuals couples and families with children. Some of us speak French and some don't. (Some of our Samois friends speak English and some don't.) And you're very welcome to join a visit even if you can't host in return. We hold social events almost every month: film nights (subtitled in English) petanque skittles quizzes Christmas party Fete des Rois etc.
