The Anglo-Malagasy Society

Welcome to the website of the Anglo-Malagasy Society, which was founded in 1961 to promote links between the United Kingdom and Madagascar.

Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds, and new members are always welcome, whether you have a particular link to Madagascar or simply have an interest in getting to know the wonderful island and its people. We hope that the information on the site will help visitors to the country to understand more about it and to find other useful points of contact.

We have a full programme of events each year, and produce a quarterly newsletter on Madagascar as well as news updates for members as necessary.

If you have any questions or comments, please do contact one of the committee as appropriate.
