How to Join the Society

We offer a very warm welcome to new members.

Members receive the two Marlowe Society Journals published annually, as well as invitations to all Society events. We hold meetings, discussions and lectures, as well as organising visits to places of interest connected to Marlowe and the Elizabethan age. Annual events include Marlowe Day and the AGM.

There are two ways to join The Marlowe Society:

  1. Print out a paper copy of the PDF DocumentMembership Application Form, fill in your details, and send it by post to the Society Treasurer together with a cheque for the appropriate membership fee.
  2. [Our online application form is not currently available.]

On receipt we will send you an introductory pack including the latest Newsletter.

Membership Types

Membership Types

We offer the following types of membership:

  • UK Standard Annual: The standard annual rate for an individual member in the UK.
  • UK Concessionary Annual: The reduced annual rate for an individual concessionary member in the UK, including full-time students, seniors and the unwaged. Please provide details.
  • UK Joint Annual: This is the combined annual rate for two members residing at the same UK address, giving a reduced rate per member.
  • UK Five Year Membership: Rate available to any individual member living in the UK who wishes to join the Society for 5 years. This rate represents a small saving on the equivalent annual rates, and avoids the need to renew your subscription every year.
  • Non-UK Annual:: The annual subscription rate that applies to any individual member living anywhere outside the UK.
  • Life: A single payment guarantees membership for life.

If you have not already done so, please help make your support go further by completing the PDF Document Gift Aid Declaration and sending it to the Treasurer. Once you have made a declaration, it will cover all eligible donations and membership subscriptions in the last four years until you cancel your declaration by writing to the Treasurer.
