About Us

Promoting friendship and understanding between the people of Britain and Spain.


Cultural events and activities

Membership of the BritishSpanish Society is open to anyone with an interest in Spain and its culture. We are a non-political organisation and charity. We host regular events and activities which provide our members with opportunities to integrate and form friendships. 

Scholarships and bursaries

We are proud of our charitable mission to award scholarships to British and Spanish post-graduate students every year. Thanks to the generosity of our principal supporters we hope to encourage valuable research and learning which we believe to be beneficial for both the UK and Spain.


Growing membership

Our central mission is to bring British and Spanish people together. Many of our members have lived, worked or studied in Spain, have a family connection to Spain or have simply enjoyed holidaying in Spain and want to pursue their love of the language and culture further.
