Welcome to the Anglo-Thai Society (ATS) and thank you for visiting our website.
The Anglo-Thai Society (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 in November. ATS is extremely grateful to our society patrons, H.E. The Thai Ambassador and The Lord Gedddes.
The Anglo-Thai Society is delighted to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Educational Awards for Excellence 2015. With its aim being to recognise the exceptional academic achievements of Thai post-graduate scholars in the UK, the ATS would like to invite all those who feel they might qualify for an award to apply. The deadline for applications is 30th July, 2015 and the Awards Ceremony will be held on 20th November, 2015. Full details and an application form to download are available by clicking here.
7:30 pm on Thursday 19th March at St Sepulchre-without-Newgate Church, Holborn, London.

Following a request from many members, we have arranged a Spring Reception which will take place in the convivial surroundings of the Oriental Club (Tel: 020 7629 5126). This is located in Stratford House, at the far end of Stratford Place, which leads off Oxford Street (North side), immediately opposite Bond Street underground station.
The event will provide an opportunity for you to meet members of the Committee, to hear about events planned for 2015, and also details of the visit to Thailand and Laos planned for February 2016. We are always keen to have an input from members about events they would like to have in future, and this will provide an informal atmosphere in which to make suggestions.
The cost of the Reception, to include drinks and a light buffet, is £25 for Members, £30 for Guests and £20 for Junior Members and members of Samaggi Samagom. NO TICKETS WILL BE ISSUED. Entry will be restricted to Members and their nominated Guests.
It is always enjoyable to meet young Thais at these events, and any member who might wish to sponsor one to attend can do so on the form below, which can be downloaded.
Please note that Gentlemen should wear a jacket and tie, and the Club has a strict rule that mobile telephones must be switched off. Cameras may only be used in the room of the Reception.
Please complete the application form which can be downloaded below, and return to:
Final date for booking is 13th March. Please note that tickets must be paid for in advance of the Reception, and are not refundable.
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
