BIDEFORD town band has returned from a trip to Landivisiau with the Bideford Twinning Association.
The long weekend saw the band take the ferry across to the twin town and play concerts for the French hosts.
Tim Watts, of the town band, said: “A great time was had by all with concerts, parties, an outdoor service and even Breton dancing lessons all on the agenda.
“Our French hosts were very welcoming and the band certainly enjoyed some good advertising for its concerts.
