34belgravesqareWelcome to the BGA and our website.

Founded in 1951, the British-German Association is a British charity that promotes mutual understanding and friendship between the UK and Germany. We perform three roles:

Forum: by ourselves and with partners, we organise events in the UK which illustrate historical, political, cultural or social aspects of Germany;

Umbrella: we work to improve communication and coordination between other British voluntary organisations involved with the UK and Germany;

Bridge: we reach out to Germany (particularly through our sister organisation, the Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft), and we promote the teaching of German in British secondary schools.

You can watch our 2021 Annual General Meeting presentation here.
