ABOUT THE SOCIETY
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.
