Sphinx and pyramids at Giza RBP

The Sphinx and Pyramids of Giza – RBP


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

Members pay a reduced admission charge to our lectures (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  subscriptions  from September 2020 have been reduced as some of our lectures are being held online. Membership includes free access to online lectures.

Ordinary Members: £15
Joint Membership (for two people living at the same address): £15
Associate Membership*: £15 per year
Student Membership (if you are still in full-time education or under 18): £12.50 per year

* Please note that Associate Membership is for those who are unable to come to the majority of meetings because of distance, health or travel reasons. Associate Members will receive our newsletters and  may attend occasional meetings/study days at the Ordinary Members Meeting charge (see below).

Please note that membership is renewed each August for the following Society year. All payments must be paid in Pounds Sterling as unfortunately we cannot accept payments in foreign currencies or payments by credit cards.

Meeting Charge:

When we are able to hold lectures at our venue, we make a small charge on the door at each meeting. From September 2020 these charges are as follows::

ALL MEMBERS: £4.00 per meeting
NON-MEMBERS: £8.00 per meeting
