The Society Update
On March 12th 100 members and guests had the honour of attending a recital and reception in St James's Palace in the presence of our Patron Prince Philip. This event sold out very quickly but we were advised to keep the numbers lower than last time to make it more of an intimate experience. What an experience it was. Starting with a glorious classical set by soprano Greta Bradman we then moved into the Queen Anne Room with HRH for a chat, delicious canapés and large volumes of Wold Blass Gold Label wines. Feedback from Prince Philip indicated that he had an enjoyable time as well! Members can log in to see the photographs taken at the event.
April is as always dominated by ANZAC Day services and the officers of the Society are attending many across the UK.
Legacy London is holding their excellent Ball on an earlier date this year... April 4th.
Get in quickly to book a place at this popular and enjoyable event. BAS members have been offered a reduced price. See "Events" for details.
We have added notable events from our ever-increasing ranks of partner organisations to the calendar .
July is focused on the multi-faceted celebrations of Arthur Phillip's life, with the highlight being the placing of a stone in the floor of Westminster Abbey.
All up a great year to be a member of The Britain-Australia Society!
We are settling well into our new home in the Australia Centre in Australia House and have had a terrific welcome from our friends (now neighbours) at the Agents-General and the other tenants.
Please note the address is now Australia Centre, Strand, London WC2B 4LG.
