  • Membership runs between January to December with existing membership subscriptions due in January.
  • Members who join part way through the year will only have to pay the balance based on the table shown.
  • Joining/Renewal Month Fee
    January £25.00
    February £23.00
    March £21.00
    April £19.00

    July £12.50
    August £10.50
    September £8.50
    October £6.00
    November £4.00
    December £2.00


Anyone who pays the full yearly membership by February 2019 will receive FREE entry into all the ticketed events at the HJGS 2019 Jazz Guitar Festival

The mathematicians, will no doubt, have realised that £25 equates to £2.0833 per month. As this would result in people having to carry inordinate amounts of small change with them, I have rounded the figures to the nearest 50p. This should reduce the wear and tear on the trouser/jean/skirt pocket and go some way to reduce the possibility of lower back pain caused by the extra coinage weight. Some people may feel aggrieved at having to pay up to 25p more, whilst other will think themselves very fortunate in saving 17p. That’s life.

We are very grateful for the support you give the society by subscribing as members. The monies enable us, on your behalf, to continue the work of the Society.

Remember the society needs YOUR views and input so, if you want to provide a short introduction/discourse for a tune yourself or make any suggestions for a tune, please speak to a committee member.  We have already had some other interesting ideas put forward which we are looking into. YOUR ideas are both vital and welcome.  It is YOUR society and the committee is there entirely on YOUR behalf.  Please, please get involved if you can!


Please note that in order to ensure an effective combination of complete workshop and some time for playing, these sessions will commence at 8:30 on the dot.
