Meetings and events
Our York Anglo-Scandinavian Society meetings and events usually take place at the Norwegian Study Centre, Quantum House, University of York, Heslington, YO10 5BR at 7.30pm. Our events and talks in 2021 follow Covid-19-safe guidelines.
Covid-19 coronavirus advice: In line with the University of York guidelines, anyone using the meeting room at the University is asked to wear a face-covering while in the building and the meeting room. The University also expects staff and students to take regular Covid tests. This helps to protect others who may be more vulnerable. Especially as many people who have Covid infections have no symptoms at all, but can still pass it on to others. Some Covid-19 testing kits are usually available (to take away) at our meetings.
