Voices was created to give a unique insight into the British Spanish Society
So who better to convince you than our members themselves?
In this series of campaign videos, we hear five distinct “voices” as they reveal what it is they love about being a member of the BSS and why they would recommend joining.
With this campaign, we share the message that whoever you are, if you have an interest in anything British-Spanish-related or just want to meet some new people, we would love to hear from you. If you would like to become part of a society that has been strengthening friendships between the UK and Spain for over 100 years, join us at become a member.

What have all these films got in common?
Todos estos films tienen, en común, la presencia en su banda sonora de una magnífica violinista vasca. Se llama Nicole Crespo O'Donoghue y, para ser exactos, es vascoirlandesa. De niña estudió en el colegio de Larrañazubi de Getxo.
