  About the Society

The British-Yemeni Society was inaugurated in February 1993. Its objectives are to promote friendship and understanding between the peoples of the two countries and to advance public knowledge in Britain about the Republic of Yemen, its history, geography, economy and culture.

The Society holds regular meetings and lectures and has been involved in sponsoring visits of Yemeni musicians to Britain, the recruitment of British teachers to work in Yemen, support for a medical clinic in Aden, a visit of Welsh musicians and craftsmen to Yemen, and support for publications and exhibitions.

It also provides a focus for contact between individuals of both countries for the development of cultural, commercial and humanitarian activities.

H.E. the Yemen Ambassador in London and H.E. the British Ambassador in Sana’a are Honorary Presidents.

The Society is a charity registered in the UK (No. 1027531)   and its affairs are managed by an elected Committee and Honorary Officers.

Membership is open to all who have an interest in the Republic of Yemen. The programme of activities includes six lecture meetings per year. Members also receive the Society’s annual Journal.

It is hoped you will join and support the British-Yemeni Society.
