Pontypool is twinned with the following towns:

Longjumeau in France

All 4 towns are twinned with each other and each year celebrate a Youth Festival for 10 of the young people from each town to meet together to enjoy a week of cultural, sporting, educational and social interaction. 

On the Civic side there is a conference held at the same time as the Youth Festival. 

On the twinning side exchange visits take place between groups and individuals in Pontypool and Pontypools Twinned Towns.
