Membership Types

We offer the following types of membership:

  • Standard Annual: The standard annual rate for an individual member in the 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.
  • Joint Annual: This is the combined annual rate for two members residing at the same UK address, giving a reduced rate per member.
  • 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.
  • Life: A single payment guarantees membership for life.

Gift Aid

As a registered charity, The Marlowe Society can claim Gift Aid on membership subscriptions and other donations. For every £1 you give, if you are a UK taxpayer we can claim an extra 25p from HMRC.

If you have not already done so, please help make your support go further by completing the 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.
