Different rates exist for individual members, individuals plus additional family members, students, and institutions. We do not normally offer a reduction for members joining part way through the year as they will still receive all of that year's publications, which represent most of the annual costs of membership. Annual subscription runs from May 1st and runs until April 30th. An increase in subscriptions was agreed at the Society's AGM in November 2018.

Individual membership 30

Individual membership is 30, and entitles the member to receive copies of all the annual publications, to attend lectures, and to take part in any activities organised by the Society.

Family membership 40

Two people from the same household can become joint members of the Society, but the household only receives one copy of each annual publication.

Student membership FREE

Anybody in full time education can apply to become a student member. Whilst they will not be eligible to receive any publications, they can attend all Society lectures free of charge, have use of the Society's library at the Guildhall, and be added to the mailing list which notifies them of local heritage related news and events. When filling in the membership form please use the email address provided by your educational institution to verify your student status.


Libraries, societies and other bodies can become institutional members which entitles them to receive a copy of Transactions each year: UK: £30; Overseas: £40
