The Bristol Anglo-German Society was formed in 1981 to further interest in the German-speaking world among the people of Bristol and surrounding districts.

The society meets at least twice monthly to attend lectures, Konversationsabende and social events. The lectures, given by society members or guest speakers, cover a wide variety of topics. Some of the lectures are in German, as are the films that the society screens, while the monthly conversation evenings are often supported by native German speakers.

The society organises an active social programme, with a Fruehschoppen in September, a Nikolausabend party and a summer garden party. An annual dinner is held in the autumn at which, in the last few years, principal guests have included no fewer than 7 past and present ambassadors, and one ambassador-to-be.

The Society is a registered charity, and associated with it is the Bristol Scheme Trust (also a charity), which supports young people wishing to live and work in Germany.

New members are welcome, and further information can be obtained from the secretary (see Contact details).
