Welcome to our new Friends and Members scheme. The idea of the scheme is to reduce our reliance on government funding for the fees and travel costs of the authors we feature throughout the year and enable us to continue to provide you with quality stimulation year after year. To support us, you can either join our Friends' scheme, which costs only £5 a year or our Members' scheme which costs £30 a year and entitles you to FREE entry to all our events and a free book every year. Both Friends and Members will receive plastic credit-card-sized membership cards (as below) which they will need to show in order to receive their benefits. The benefits of each scheme are listed below:

Friends (£5 per year):

  • Priority seating for on-the-day booking
  • Free entry to book discussion group events
