British Georgian Society (BGS) aims to bring closer together people in Great Britain and Georgia and develop greater understanding by providing a platform for events in interesting venues on a wide range of Georgia-related subjects such as art, film, music, culture, archaeology, history and contemporary events. Since it started in 2004, BGS has established very firm links with the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Georgian Embassy in the UK and has strong connections in the diplomatic, cultural and business fields.
