You are invited to come along to our gatherings and either we’ll spot you or just make yourself known. For experienced observers, dive in and share your fascination. For those starting out, we run a series of workshops to help you get the most out of your observing and cash when it comes to buying equipment. To participate beyond public outreach observing, we ask you join our parent, the William Herschel Society. It allows us to cover the small costs running the group incurs and if there is a surplus, to invest in the next year’s plans.

Annual Subscription

We always welcome new members to the William Herschel Society as part of the Bath Astronomers observing arm. The Application Form for membership is available for download and printing here. It includes the optional for Gift Aiding your subscription and for paying it by Banker’s Order. Return the completed form to:

The Membership Secretary
William Herschel Society
19 New King Street

The most efficient way, for both you and the Society, of paying your subscription is by Banker’s Order. If you prefer to pay by cash or cheques each, you will be sent a reminder by post or email in good time. You may pay for more than one year at a time if you wish. If you do, please make it clear that you are paying extra subscriptions, rather than including a donation.

The Society is unable to accept card payments online or by phone. Alternatively, payment can be made through PayPal using the email address fredsch @ as recipient.

No extra subscription is needed for membership for couples who require only one mailing of the Journal and other items. Entry to the Museum is free for both.

The Society is naturally very happy to receive donations at any time! Any amount sent to us over and above your subscription will be treated as a donation. If you are a UK taxpayer you can increase the value of your subscription by 25% by signing the Gift Aid Declaration Form.
