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 follow Covid-19-safe guidelines. Our plans for next year are listed on our 2022 YASS Events page.
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 protect others who may be more vulnerable. People who have Covid infections may have no symptoms at all, but can still pass it on to others.
