The Scandinavian Society is for anyone from or interested in Scandinavia, or anyone who wants to meet new people in a relaxed setting.
For many it is a chance to meet people from home and for others it is a way to learn about another culture, and mix it with their own to create experiences and ideas that are exciting and novel. Throughout the year we organise events such as Kubb, Waffle nights, treasure hunt, pub-crawls, the infamous Vikingfest, and loads more fun events. So if you’re interested in Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish or Icelandic culture and heritage come along and get involved, we’d love to meet you!
