Annual Membership  

Annual membership runs from September to July the following year and we do try to keep subscriptions as low as possible.

For September 2021 to July 2022 we will be presenting a mix of online and venue lectures (where allowed) across the year to cater for everyone whether local to Manchester or living further away or overseas.

Members pay a reduced admission charge to our lectures and study days (and access our online lectures free of charge) and also receive four editions of our  newsletter Djehuty, containing articles by members, notes and news of Egyptological interest, as well as information on forthcoming events, exhibitions, books and much more. Members will receive their copy of Djehuty by email, however, a paper copy can be requested which can be collected at our monthly meetings. If this is not convenient, then copies can be posted (though with increasing postal costs, we try to limit the number of copies that are sent in the post).

Membership includes free access to online lectures and a reduced fee of £4 on the door for venue lectures. Study Days are charged separately.
