The Anglo-Albanian Association (AAA)

The Anglo-Albanian Association (AAA) holds regular talks on Albanian history, culture and music, book launches and screenings of Albanian films.

From 2011 efforts were made to start to revitalise the AAA. The Anglo-Albanian Association (AAA) evolved from a committee established in 1912 by Aubrey Herbert, the renowned diplomat, scholar and MP. His aim was to champion Albania’s right to independence. Edith Durham was an early active participant and Secretary of the Association. She won acclaim as a foreign correspondent, writer, traveller, and anthropologist of the Balkans.

After the First World War, the Association monitored events in the Balkans and was an important channel through which news from Albania was conveyed to the British Government and general public. After the Second World War its prime concern was for the fate of exiles from Enver Hoxha's Albania. Since the collapse of the Communist regime in 1991, and the advent of democracy, the Association has renewed its links with Albania.

The Association celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012 with a series of centenary events and has continued with a rich programme of events .including two major Scanderbeg events, one at Pembroke College in Cambridge in 2016 , and one on 16 November 2018, in the British Academy in London.

Members are requested to pay their annual membership subscriptions which will entitle them to free or reduced rate admittance to these events and to the Annual General Meeting.

The annual subscription is £15 for a single adult, £25 for family membership and £5 for a student.
