Update : papers for the 2023 AGM can be accessed via the Members’ Page
The Society reaches members by publishing a printed Newsletter, by organising social functions, and by arranging visits to exhibitions, concerts, and other places of interest.
It occasionally arranges visits to the Netherlands.
The Anglo-Netherlands Society -founded in June 1920 as the Anglo-Batavian Society- adopted its present name in 1944. Throughout its history it has enjoyed the support of the Royal Families of both the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, and has benefited greatly from the support and hospitality of successive Netherlands Ambassadors in London.
In addition to printed Newsletters, at least eight e-news bulletins announce events and other newsworthy stuff; there is also an Instagram account. Taking into account that we organised twenty-odd events in 2021, the annual Membership is surprisingly good value.
The Anglo-Netherlands Society is a non-party-political, non-profit organisation, based in London, run by voluntary effort, which aims to promote the social, artistic, literary, educational, scientific and other interests the Dutch and the British have in common, as well as developing goodwill and understanding between the peoples of the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Our events are conducted in English.
A number of major companies in the UK and the Netherlands have over many years – and some for several decades – given generous support, among them: ABN-Amro Bank, Heineken, ING Bank, Philips, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Rabobank, Shell and Unilever.
Summary in Dutch : Méér dan een Nederlandse Vereniging of club in Londen is de Anglo-Netherlands Society een levendige vereniging welke leden van zowel Engelse als Nederlandse afkomst samen brengt. De Society, opgericht in 1920, heeft als doel bevordering van de sociale, artistieke, literaire, educatieve en wetenschappelijke interesse in elkanders land. Daartoe worden regelmatig lezingen en bezoeken georganiseerd, waarbij naast leren over ons gastland ook sociaal contact een rol speelt. De voertaal is Engels, veel leden spreken uiteraard ook Nederlands.
