Who We Are
The Danish-Scottish Society was founded in 1986 and today has over 150 members. The members are people all over Scotland with links to, or a special interest in Denmark. Some have been here for a long time and others are only here temporarily. No matter your situation, you will always be welcome at a Danish-Scottish Society event.
We arrange social and cultural events for all age groups. We run The Danish School in Scotland for 5-16 year olds and we have a playgroup for 0-5 year olds. Danish-Scottish Society is a member of the Confederation of Scandinavian Societies (CoScan).
Joining the Danish-Scottish Society gives you the opportunity to meet, network and chat in English or Danish with other Danes and people interested in Denmark and Scotland.
Some of the benefits include:
Member discount on events
Early sign-up to events
Enrolling children in the Danish School in Scotland
Free Danish-Scottish Playgroup
Newsletters about the latest events
We look forward to meeting you at our next event.
Can I attend events without joining?
You can attend some events without joining, however, you will not be able to take advantage of the member benefits, which include early sign-up and discounted events.
Is there a similar group for people interested in Scottish culture in Denmark?
Yes, our friends at the St. Andrew Society of Denmark is a well-established group running events for people in Denmark with an interest in Scottish culture. It costs 150 kroner per individual and 250 kroner per couple. You can join by emailing them here or you can visit their facebook group for more information.
I need advice about something. Can you help?
We will do our best. You can either email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or you can ask the Danish-Scottish Network facebook page, which has over 800 followers with an interest in all things Danish.
Do I need to speak Danish?
No, you do not need to speak Danish. Many of our members only speak English. The Danish-Scottish Society is for anyone with an interest in Denmark and you are welcome to join and attend events.
