About us

CoScan acts as a coordinating body for societies which work for cultural exchange between UK and Ireland on the one hand and the five Scandinavian countries, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Sweden and Norway, on the other.

CoScan was founded in 1950 and is an autonomous non-profit making organisation funded by subscriptions from its affiliated member societies and individual members, by voluntary contributions and fund-raising activities.

CoScan comprises about 30 member societies, representing over 30,000 individuals, bringing together those with an interest or family roots in any of the five Nordic countries.

Our member societies cover a wide range of cultural and social topics, providing a network of advice, support and social contact.

CoScan is run by an Executive Committee elected by affiliated societies at the Annual General Meeting. The AGM is held alternately in the UK, and in a Nordic country (the biennial CoScan ‘Conference’). The Honorary President is not elected.

I am writing on behalf of the Association of Estonians in Great Britain and the Leicester Estonian House.
As you are aware Estonians are celebrating 100 years since gaining independence this year. One of our main events this year is the “European Estonian Song and Dance festival - 100 years of Estonian Song and Dance” in Leicester on Saturday 8th September at “The Venue DMU” (De Montfort University) at 2.00 pm. (details attached). More than 130 Estonian singers and a number of dance groups from 15 countries in Europe will be taking part. There will be Estonian singers and dancers from Sweden and Norway, and maybe also Denmark.
I am aware that there are many Scandinavians living in the Midlands and further afield, some of whom may wish to come to this event.
Regards,
Toomas Ojasoo, Chairman - Association of Estonians in Great Britain.
