    TThhee SSoocciieettyyThe Macedonian Society of Great Britain was founded in 1989 and is a Registered Charity (No:1044357) with the Charity Commission for England and Wales. It is dedicated to the promotion ofMacedonian history, culture & heritage and is the main organisation in this country that informs andeducates the public that Macedonia, its history and its heritage, are Hellenic. The society is involved inorganising lectures & presentations, by well known historians, academics, journalists and politicians allopen to the general public. These events keep alive in the public consciousness the fact that although theMacedonian name has been misappropriated by a foreign people, our identity can not be.
