To mark our 25th anniversary, Vlado Kreslin, one of the greatest of Slovenia’s popular singers, will perform a concert for us after dinner.
And because it’s a special occasion, we are offering rates which are significantly lower than in recent years:
– Members £45, non-members £60, students and under-18s £29.
For that you will enjoy a drinks reception, a three-course dinner with wine, the concert with Vlado Kreslin and a tombola with all sorts of attractive prizes.

– Reserve your places now using the Application Form below. Space is limited, so it’s first come, first serve.
You should assume that paid-for places have been reserved unless you hear to the contrary. No tickets will be issued.
If you wish to make up your own party, please nominate a host who will book the table in his/her name. Please advise if you have any dietary requirements.
As in previous years, we are grateful to the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in London for donating Slovenian wine for the occasion.
Last year, the Government of the Republic of Slovenia granted the British-Slovene Society a subsidy, which is also much appreciated.

Christmas Carol Service on Friday 8th December

The BSS warmly invites you to our annual Carol Service on the 8th of December 2017, at 6:30 pm.

This is our regular festive get together which is held in the beautiful church of St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe, Queen Victoria Street and St. Andrew’s Hill, City of London, EC4V 5DE.

The church, which was built by Sir Christopher Wren is a wonderful historic building and well worth a visit in its own right. Please come and join in our carol singing in English and Slovene.

Catch up with friends after the service as there will be potica (offered by the Society) and Christmas drinks (courtesy of the Embassy).

There is no charge but a collection is taken to support the work of the Barka charity in Slovenia.

Nearest underground Blackfriars. St Paul’s and Mansion House nearby.
