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.

Please note that, regrettably, the Anglo-Thai Society is not able to consider applications for financial support from charities or educational projects in Thailand at this time.


ATS Annual Christmas Lunch proved to be another very popular event last year

The Annual ATS Christmas lunch took place on Tuesday, 12th December at the Royal Lancaster Hotel - not at the usual “Nipa” venue but at the nearby Park Restaurant which also enjoys glorious Hyde Park views. The reason for the change is that this particular event has grown increasingly in popularity, to the point where this year’s attendance of 71 was not only a record but too large for the Nipa which can only accommodate 60 people. The change of venue drew mixed reviews so we may well return to Nipa for this year’s event but either way, members are advised to book early to avoid disappointment!

As for the Christmas lunch itself (and self-evident from the photos) all concerned had a most enjoyable time. It also proved to be a good occasion to present a variety of congratulatory Table prizes and many thanks go out to all the winners and sponsors alike.
