Membership Information

The cost of membership is £47, plus a one-off registration fee of £10 for new members. This gives members access to ten lectures per year from October to July. Study days, visits and tours are offered at an additional cost. Membership of The Arts Society High Wycombe entitles you to attend the lectures and to receive the quarterly national magazine which lists national and regional study days and trips, as well as arts related feature articles. All membership enquiries should be emailed to our Membership Secretary, details below.  All emailed applications are acknowledged within 14 days, if you receive no reply this may mean your application has not been received.


A limited number of guests will be able to attend lectures by booking seats in advance through the Membership Secretary by email to or by ringing 01494 531911. No guest will be able to attend more than three lectures in any one programme year (October to July).  Any guest that arrives at The Hub not having previously reserved a place, will probably not be able to attend the lecture and the Membership Secretary’s decision at that time is final. The rate for guests is currently £6.
