The Galley Club

Join the Galley Club

Membership application

The Galley Club is the not-for-profit club for all involved in the production and publishing process to promote and discuss all aspects of our trades and crafts from concept to publication. Membership includes entry to at least 6 events during our season, and wine/buffet at those events.

JOIN US. Potential new members are welcome to attend a speaker meeting by emailing with your name and paying on the night (including buffet). Early bird tickets are often available beforehand at around £8-10; full rate on-line £10-12.

Membership is a very reasonable £30* per season/year, including buffet at speaker evenings, so click here to fill out the form.

* Concessionary membership rates per season/year are available for students £15; retired members £10.

We meet for events from October through to June – our ‘season’ – with occasional summer outings and special events; the venue may vary, so check details at the time. For speaker evenings, we gather at 6.30pm when a buffet is served before our guest speaker talks about their chosen subject at about 7pm. Before and after, you have the opportunity to socialise with our buffet provided.

Stay informed by signing up to our newsletter The Galley Proof.

Membership covers the whole spectrum from authors, editors, designers, typesetters, freelancers, publishers, printers, paper merchants and the digital world beyond.
