EVENTS

Events of interest to our members form an important part of the Anglo-Swedish Society's agenda. Some 12-15 are organized every year and highlighted in our newsletters, produced three times yearly. Although there is often an obvious Swedish connection, we take the view that members meeting up and getting to know each other is the key factor in these popular get-togethers. The events are often combined with a lunch, dinner or evening drinks. To apply for ticket, go to the Payment section.
