Friends of the RAS HK [UK-based]

We are a group of mostly ex-members of the Royal Asiatic Society in Hong Kong, now living in the U.K., who meet together for regular lectures in London as well as an annual Chinese New Year lunch in Chinatown and a weekend away during the summer, always with a Chinese theme.

Membership is open to anyone with a history of and 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 a Chinese lunch at a nearby restaurant. Recent summer trips have been to Cambridge, Oxford, Aberdeen, Liverpool and Bath.

Our annual subscription is £15/£25 per year (single/joint) – to join please contact Bernadette Mackenzie Ross at or telephone 01494 874604.
