About Finland House Society

Finland
Fin­land House Soci­ety (FHS) is a char­i­ta­ble orga­ni­za­tion formed by its mem­bers to act as an umbrel­la orga­ni­za­tion, and on their behalf man­age, togeth­er with oth­er Scan­di­na­vian House Soci­eties the Scan­di­na­vian Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­tre. The Cen­tre serves as a place where Finnish cul­ture and events can be show­cased.

FHS brings togeth­er ex-patri­ates, descen­dants, friends and all those inter­est­ed to par­tic­i­pate and enjoy mod­ern and tra­di­tion­al Finnish favourites such as St. Urho’s day Vap­pu, Mid­sum­mer Fes­ti­val, Inde­pen­dence Day and Christ­mas par­ties and craft fairs. Our mem­ber­ship is diverse and reflects many aspects of Finnish life (check out our mem­ber orga­ni­za­tions page for more infor­ma­tion). All of these events and pro­grammes are made pos­si­ble by our small ‘army’ of ded­i­cat­ed vol­un­teers.
