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.

events – awards – culture


Members of many nationalities and all ages come together to enjoy original cultural events, often in spectacular environments. The Society’s music, dance, fashion and art scholars often feature and there is always a chance to mingle and make new friends.
