Apply for membership


You can apply for membership here using our online form.

You can also download and complete a Direct Debit form which we will use to collect your annual subscription and, if you wish, payment for Guild events.

Otherwise download the Membership Application Form  and, once complete, send with the appropriate amount, to our postal address. Please see our fees page for details of lifelong or yearly membership and discounted volumes of the Guild's history.
 

What happens next?

 

We consider membership applications during our Court Meetings, held five times a year.

Every applicant is advised of the outcome within a week of the meeting at which their application is considered.

Successful applicants are invited to participate in the Joining and Welcoming Ceremony, which takes place at Tallow Chandlers' Hall during a Court Meeting.

We send new members the latest edition of The Freeman (the Guild's journal) and an invitation to take part in forthcoming events. The complete cycle does not usually take more than three months.
