British Community Association of Vienna
The British Community Association of Vienna (BCA) operates on a non-profit basis, organising social and cultural events for British passport holders and their families living in Vienna.
Whether you are a newcomer to Vienna or you have been here for some time, the BCA has something to offer. If you have recently arrived, we understand that it can be difficult to create a new social life, particularly if the language is new, and we can help make that easier, by introducing you to our own network of British friends already living here. If you are already established in Vienna you will be able to expand your existing network of social contacts, and either way, you will be able to join in the events that we organise.
We have regular events and activities each month, which include pub evenings, a walking group, sailing, coffee mornings, darts nights, a ladies’ nights out, theatre & cinema visits, family days out and lots more.
Pub Night, once every month, new members are always welcome.
Simply contact us to find out when the next one is being held and pop along. You’ll receive a warm welcome from our members.
Below are some key membership benefits:
- Getting to meet up with fellow Brits and their families in Vienna.
- Regular Newsletters.
- Exclusive events.
- Low Annual Fee for Single and Family Membership.
- Ability to bring along guests to events.
Coronation King Charles III, Saturday 6th May 2023:
Just in case your invitation has got lost in the post, the BBC has a useful rundown of events next weekend. In addition, ORF2 has a live broadcast from around 09:05 on 6th May. BCA Vienna is not organising any specific events, but I’m sure you might find one or two members in some well known drinking establishments! https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-65342840
Our members enjoy a lively and varied social life in and around our beautiful city.
Each month members receive the Association’s Newsletter (just started up again April 2023), which details forthcoming events organised by other members. No-one is obliged to attend, but with such a diverse range on offer, there is bound to be something to tempt everyone.
Organising, and attending a BCA event can be a lot of fun. Some of our popular events are our “Pub Night”, “Darts Night”, “Coffee Morning”, “Restaurant Evening”, “Men’s Beisl Tour”, “Weekday Walks” (Monday and Wednesday) or our “Book Club”.
Would you like to organise an Event?
You’ve got an idea for an event or would like to host an event? Please email your event details or ideas to the events coordinator. Write a little text about the location, give your contact details as a host and don’t forget to the public transport details on how to reach the location.
The BCA was run informally until 2000 when its members decided to form an official “Eingetragener Verein”. This was founded in 2001, and since then the association has been known as the British Community Association of Vienna (Vereinigung der Briten in Wien).
