WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
Founded in the aftermath of the First World War, the Anglo-Swedish Society was established to foster greater understanding and friendship between Britain and Sweden. The continued strong bond between these two nations has allowed the Society to evolve into a non-proﬁt organisation that promotes intellectual and cultural crossover by organising prestigious events and supporting scholarships of the arts.

Members and guests are invited to take part in a traditional Swedish Valborg dinner. There will be a short Speech to the Woman, Speech to the Man and a musical interlude by the Society’s scholars.
The dinner will be held at the Chandler’s Hall. The Worshipful Company of Tallow Chandlers began in the 1200s as a trade organisation which moved to itscurrent location in July 1476. The great medieval hall was burned down in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and was redesigned and completed in 1977 by Captain John Caines under the guidance of Robert Hooke.
The Hall has a well-deserved reputation as one of the most beautiful, welcoming and well preserved of London’s livery halls. Heraldic stained glass and fine paintings, combined with fine oak panelling, create the perfect atmosphere for any special occasion.
Dress code: suit and tie.
