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. The ATS is extremely grateful to our society patrons, H.E. The Thai Ambassador and The Lord Gedddes.
To mark the 10th anniversary of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami, the Anglo-Thai Society and the Thai Children's Trust have joined together to form a sponsorship scheme for children at an orphanage founded to care for for children who lost parents in the disaster. Every child deserves a proper start in life and your sponsorship can make a real difference. To find out more about the scheme, the children living at the orphanage and how you can sponsor a child from just £18 month, please click here
