The BCSA is here to excite your interest in all things Czech and Slovak – from food to fashion, art to design tech, sport to literature.

The BCSA is a natural hub for Czechs and Slovaks living, working and studying in the UK who want to celebrate their heritage, to show off their culture to friends, and to argue over their history and politics.

Membership of the BCSA offers a host of stimulating events, unrivalled networking opportunities, and plenty of fun.

About Us

The BCSA, a registered UK charity and membership association based in London, welcomes anyone with an interest in the Czech or Slovak Republics.

People of all ages and backgrounds join the BCSA.

Some of our members are Brits with Czech or Slovak partners, some are British students of Slavonic studies, and some are British individuals or companies with an interest in the republics. Many are former citizens of Czechoslovakia who moved to the UK years ago; others are Czechs and Slovaks who currently work or study in the UK.

Members receive four issues of our Review magazine a year and enjoy free entry to a regular programme of stimulating events and fun social occasions to which your friends are welcome too.

Whatever the reason for your interest in the Czech and Slovak Republics, you’re assured of a warm welcome in the BCSA.

BCSA "Get to know you" social evening

Fancy chatting to some friendly people with similar interests over a drink and maybe a meal? Anybody with Czech or Slovak connections or interests is welcome to our monthly socials to meet, eat, drink, chat and get to know each other a little better in a relaxed and informal gathering. We usually have about a dozen people there at various times during the evening but, whatever the number, there will be good conversations for you to join in with. All you have to do is turn up any time between 7pm and 10:30pm. There is no need to book. We will be in one of the rooms at the Czech and Slovak National House, normally the first room on the left. There will be a BCSA sign on the door. Czech and Slovak food and drinks are available from the restaurant and bar. A request: If you are interested in coming then please share this event on your timeline and invite your Facebook friends to come too.
