The York Anglo-Scandinavian Society (YASS) brings together people in the York area with a common interest in Scandinavia.

If you have been to one of the Scandinavian countries, studied a Nordic language, have family or friends there, or just want to become more involved in some aspect of Scandinavian/Nordic life, language, culture or history, come to one of our events or contact us about joining YASS.
