Forthcoming Events for 2017
The Society holds meetings at various locations around the UK at which Members and guests are most welcome. If you want to learn more about postal history just contact the Member who is listed as the convenor below and you will be provided with further details. The day usually takes the format of an invited speaker in the morning and those attending have the opportunity, if they wish, to talk briefly about a subject of their choice in the afternoon. A nominal charge is made to cover room hire and refreshments with lunch as an option for those who wish it.
The Annual Conference takes place on the first weekend in October and also moves around the country so that all Members have the chance to attend within a reasonable distance. This is the highlight of the Society's year with displays by eminent collectors, an annual auction, competitions and the Society's annual dinner. Guests are welcome also, either as day visitors or residents, and partners are invited to add to the conviviality of the weekend.
