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.
