The BCSA is here to excite your interest in all things Czech and Slovak – from history to today's politics, architecture to film, sport to literature.

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

Be part of the BCSA

People of many ages and backgrounds join the BCSA including British individuals with an interest in the Czech and Slovak Republics. Some members are former Slovak or Czech citizens who have settled in the UK with their British partners and families. Others are Czechs and Slovaks who live, work or study in Britain. Many founder members are former citizens of what was Czechoslovakia who left their country in difficult times.
