The Anglo-Danish Society

Welcome to the Anglo-Danish Society

The Anglo-Danish Society was established to further relations between Britain and Denmark and today organises a lively programme of cultural and social events in the UK - mostly with privileged access - for Brits and Danes to enjoy each other's culture and company. 

We have a low membership fee and welcome new applications to join - you can download a Membership Application Form here.

The Society enjoys the patronage of Her Majesty the Queen and Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark. It also has the active support of the Royal Danish Embassy and a number of Danish and British companies and organisations.


The Society awarded its first scholarship in 1959 and continues to grant scholarships for the purpose of post-graduate study or research to British and Danish students. This year awards will be made to 10 postgraduate students for study in the other country. Of these awards, 7 are general and are not limited to any specific subject, while 3 are restricted: the Ove Arup Foundation award is for a student working in the field of the 'Built Environment', the William Charnley Anglo-Danish Scholarship is for a student taking an MPhil, MASt or LLM at Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge and the ACE Foundation award is for a British student working in either architecture, design, art or music.

HRH The Duchess of Gloucester is the Protector of the Scholarship Programme and we are a registered charity (No 313202).

We are entirely staffed by volunteers and rely on donations to fund the Scholarship Programme. For information on how you can help us continue this work please see the Support Our Scholars Appeal >
