Our members come from all walks of life and share a commitment to celebrating the fascinating culture of Argentina. Over the decades, many members have formed strong friendships as well as artistic collaborations and business partnerships.
Argentinian traditions, art, literature, music, dance and ways of life are at the heart of our Society. Many types of events are organised throughout the year, taking the form of lectures, concerts, literary talks, tango sessions and much more. All of these events are exclusive to our members and take place both in person and online, making it very easy to get involved.
As well as our programme of engaging activities, we also organise larger events each year that are admired for their magnificence, vitality and welcoming spirit. These include the Gran Asado Argentino, the Ambassador’s Gala Dinner, the Society Christmas Party, and our popular series of Borges Lectures, initiated by writer Jorge Luis Borges himself in 1983.
The Anglo-Argentine Society partners with the Argentine Embassy in the UK, and fellow organisations such as the Oxford Argentine Cultural Forum, the British Spanish Society, the Canning Club (formerly known as the Argentine Club), offering access to events like polo matches, concerts and conferences.
Avid bookworms and anyone interested in exploring Contemporary Argentine Literature in Spanish from 1983 onwards will love our book club, which includes open, friendly and insightful discussion around each chosen publication.
As a member, you have the opportunity to help us fundraise for Argentinian charities and causes. The level of involvement can be shaped around your work-life balance, ensuring that your charitable activity never becomes too difficult to fit into your schedule.
During special occasions, we work with our sponsors to offer our members a range of discounts and promotions on everything from products and services to concerts and events.
Designed to keep you informed, inspired and entertained, our newsletters will bring you up to speed with everything taking place within our Society, as well as the latest developments in the broader Argentine-British community.
