Whilst operating online only, you get to see all the action close up in the comfort of your home.

We revised our membership fee structure from 2021 as a result of Covid-19, in order to ensure we could continue to operate and provide a full programme of workshop sessions and demonstrations. We are pleased to announce our fees remain unchanged for 2022.
There are two ways to pay for membership in 2022:
1. An annual fee of £85, payable in one lump sum or by quarterly instalments. This means nothing extra to pay to attend online or physical meetings for the year.
2. A fee of £18 to cover membership is required, followed by a fee of £8 for every demonstration attended. The online demonstrations via Zoom will require to be paid for prior to the meeting by purchasing a ‘ticket’ via the event page on this website. More details will be provided soon.
In both cases there is no charge for the workshop sessions.
