Join the Society!

N.B. 15 May 2023, this web page was revised with new information.

This is the revised Luxembourg Society's Constitution (updated in 2022).

The Society always welcomes membership applications. It was founded in London in 1942, during the Second World War. The fact that it is still going strong today affirms its purpose. In 2022, it proudly celebrated its 80th anniversary.

Join the Society today, and you will be in good company!

Why should you become a member?

Membership is open to anybody wanting to promote close and friendly relations between Britain and Luxembourg, subject to acceptance by the Council of the Society.

Membership includes expatriates who wish to keep a connection with Luxembourg. Expatriates may socialise with fellow nationals, some of whom have settled in Britain or are temporary residents, students and employees. The Society facilitates both business and social contacts.

Membership is also for non-expatriates. It embraces a large category of people who have lived and worked in the Grand Duchy, people with family connections or Luxembourg ancestry, and all those who, for one reason or another, have established a bond with the country and the Luxembourg Society.

In addition to social gatherings, members may participate in recreational activities such as visits to places of interest, lectures, concerts, and art exhibitions. The Society receive a grant from the Luxembourg Government. Its social calendar is supported generously by the Embassy in London.
