Welcome to the Anglo-Thai Society (ATS) and thank you for visiting our website.
The ATS was founded in 1962 to help promote good relations between the UK and Thailand. It currently has around 300 members with an interest in Thailand's people, culture and its business relations. Throughout the year the society organises various events and activities of interest to our members. The two principal Anglo-Thai Society events each year are the Summer Reception at the House of Lords in June and The Presentation of Educational Awards at the Oriental Club in November.
Monday, June 3rd. 6:30 - 8:30 pm
The Cholmondeley Room, House of Lords
(Entry through Black Rod's Garden entrance)
ATS will once again be holding a Summer Reception at the House of Lords, following the society's Annual General Meeting. We are once again indebted to the Lord Geddes for hosting the Reception. Refreshments and drinks will be included in the ticket price of £30 for Members. Guests will be welcome at £35 each, and Junior Members, and Members of Samaggi Samagom at £15 per person. The Society has been pleased to welcome a considerable number of new members during the past year, and we hope that any guests you may bring will also consider membership. Members are also invited to sponsor a member of Samaggi Samagom to attend the reception.
During the Reception His Excellency Mr Pasan Terapak, the Thai Ambassador, will give a short address. We will also enjoy Thai music played on traditional instruments by the Thai Music Circle.
Admission to the House of Lords for this event is strictly by ticket, which must be obtained in advance. Please complete the Application Form, which can be downloaded below
