Message from our Chairman
Welcome to The Anglo Chilean Society!
We hold a variety of events throughout the year where members and their guests can enjoy an aspect of Chilean culture - usually followed by a few glasses of Chilean wine.
Some of these events are an opportunity for members to meet each other such as at our annual Chilean BBQ.
Others are events to promote Chilean artistic talent in the UK.
Most of our activities raise funds to help those most in need in Chile. We work closely with the Embassy of Chile where many of our events take place.
Please get in touch with us if you would like to know more.
'A Celebration of Chilean Art'
Fine collection of artworks by well-known Chilean artists that was very generously donated to the Anglo Chilean Society by Mrs Pola de Kadt-Valdivieso and Mr Emanuel de Kadt.
The intention behind the donation was that the artworks should be shown to the public before being sold to raise funds for the general purposes of the Society. Those purposes include bringing Chilean culture and artistic talent to the attention of the British public and giving financial help to worthy causes in Chile and, in particular, on Easter Island, which has been hard hit by two years of pandemic isolation.
The artworks will, by kind permission of the Chilean Ambassador, be on display at the Chilean Embassy between 09.30 and 17.30 on weekdays from Thursday, the 24th of November until Wednesday, the 14th of December, inclusive, with free admission.

Araucaria Map in the UK
Some years ago, the Society launched its ambitious project to build the “Araucaria Map of the UK”, gathering photos of araucaria trees from all over the country. Members and friends were invited to contribute, sending in their photographs whenever they saw one of these iconic trees, stating the location of the sighting. So far, we have managed to pin more than 200 photographs to monkey puzzle tree map! See gallery HERE
Anglo Chilean connections
from a long time ago
A while ago one of our members sent us a series of photographs from when his grandfather lived in Chile from 1924 to
1931 and we thought that we could create a page with information and photos from our members' personal archives.
Anglo Chilean connections exist from a long time ago, so with your help, we are wanting
to investigate these connections and see where history takes us.
Thank you for your support!
