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.
To mark the Auspicious Occasion of the 5th Cycle Birthday Anniversary on 2nd April 2015 of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn and moving forward into the 5th century of Thailand-UK relations, the Royal Thai Embassy in London would like to invite you to a performance of the traditional Thai Masked play 'Khon: the Epic Performance from Thailand', by artists from the Office of Performing Arts, the Fine Arts Department and Ministry of Culture of Thailand at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Thursday 18 June 2015 at 7:30 pm.
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.
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
