How to Join Us
Membership is open to all interested persons; the fee for 2020-2021 is £30. Membership is free for full-time students at a recognized School, College or University. Members pay no admittance charge for ordinary meetings and have access to restricted activities such as Visits, the Annual Dinner and the Summer Supper. Tickets for The Erasmus Darwin Memorial Lecture should be purchased from the LichfieldGarrick Box Office, where Members benefit from early booking and a reduced rate. Members can receive full and early information on all of the Society’s activities by e-mail.
The Society regrets that at present, because of overcrowding in the Studio at the more popular lectures, the membership list is closed to new members. Applicants will be placed on a waiting list and treated in order of application. Under these circumstances it will not be necessary to enclose a cheque with the application form.

Owing to current restrictions the Society’s lecture meetings are being held through the videoconferencing platform Zoom. The link to each lecture is distributed to Members by e-mail. We hope to be back in the Garrick theatre as soon as possible but at present that is a matter beyond our control. Members will be kept informed of any change.

All are welcome to attend our lecture meetings which are mostly held in the Studio, occasionally in the Main Theatre of the LichfieldGarrick, Castle Dyke, Lichfield. They begin at 8:00 pm. and are expected to finish by 10:00 pm. When the meeting is in the Studio Members signing in before 7:50 pm will have precedence over all visitors. A limited number of tickets will be available for members to book in advance through the box office. The fee for visitors at our regular meetings is £7.00.
The Green Room of the LichfieldGarrick will be open for refreshments before and often after the lecture.
