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.

2016 Educational Award Ceremony and Winners

Friday 25th November, 2016

The evening proved to be an extremely memorable one with a record number of talented student award winners, many of whom were accompanied by their PhD supervisors. The aim of the Awards is to recognise the exceptional academic achievements of Thai post-graduate scholars in the UK and are strongly supported by the Royal Thai Embassy.  In his speech Minister Nadhavathna Krishnamram, Deputy Head of the Thai Embassy, commended ATS on their initiative and paid tribute to the many talented Thai students in the UK and the importance of their research to the Thai nation.

A highlight of the evening was the enlightening speech by the keynote speaker Mr Iain Smith OBE, the eminent Film producer, who spent several months living in Thailand while shooting his Oscar winning film ‘The Killing Fields’.  He explained why Thailand was so important to him; how the Thai people had supported him in so many ways and how he had been touched by their goodwill and gentleness


Our congratulations go to all the students and our sincere thanks go to Khun Yos Euarchukiati for his generosity in sponsoring this year’s awards in memory of the late John Weston, the ATS Academic judging panel, The Royal Thai Embassy and all the individual Award sponsors.

The Awards continue to attract prestigious sponsors who wish to be associated with an event which recognises the tremendous wealth of talent of Thai students in the UK.
