The British Benevolent Society hosts and participates in events throughout the year. They’re wonderful opportunities to network with other British expats and enjoy a little taste of home.

Annual events like our traditional British Christmas Dinner are not to be missed, while other social events throughout the year have included curry nights, wine tastings, pub quizzes and the Clash for the Ashes cricket match.
