Friends of the Royal Asiatic Society Hong Kong

The Friends group was established in the United Kingdom in 1998 by several former members of the Society in Hong Kong.  The group holds regular lectures  in London as well as an annual Lunar New Year lunch and a weekend away during the summer, always with a Chinese theme.

Membership is open to anyone with a history of and/or an interest in Hong Kong.  Our lectures are held on Saturday afternoons at the headquarters of the Royal Asiatic Society in Euston and are always preceded by an Asian lunch at a nearby restaurant.  Recent summer trips have been to Cambridge, Oxford, Aberdeen Liverpool and Bath.

Our annual subscription is £15/£25 (single/joint).  To join please use the form below.
