WELCOME TO THE ANGLO-SWEDISH SOCIETY
Founded in 1918 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.
The Society raises funds to enable Swedish students the opportunity to attend and experience some of the UK’s most esteemed institutions such as the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and the Royal Ballet School in Covent Garden. It also supports exchange programmes between British and Swedish associations such as the Royal College of Art and Konstfack. Money is raised via membership fees, events and donations.
As a member you are invited to an array of events. Our vibrant annual calendar serves in equal measure to raise money for our various projects as well as to encourage cultural exchange and participation. Mingle with a mix of interesting people, enjoy live entertainment, visit famed venues such as the House of Lords and Mansion House – our main aim is to have a good time while contributing to a good cause.
The Society enjoys the patronage of King Carl Gustaf of Sweden, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Swedish Ambassador to the United Kingdom is a registered charity In England.
Join today! We warmly welcome anybody who wishes to promote the advancement of education, culture and the arts or who has an interest in or connection to Sweden. Fill out an APPLICATION FORM and select the membership that suits you best.
