Membership Reduced Rates

We offer reduced rates for our members. For example, from 1st January 2019, Members will pay £2 rather than £5 for BRLSI lectures, and £4 rather than £7 for Bath Box Office tickets, so saving £3 per lecture.

Participate in BRLSI Affairs.

Our AGM will be held on Wednesday, 23rd October 2019, at 7.30pm. Come and have your say about the direction of BRLSI affairs!

Members' Exhibition

We hold a bi-annual BRLSI Members' Art Exhibition, where for a modest fee, Members exhibit their artwork. For this each Member receives an entry in the catalogue, plus a free pass, a free drink and nibbles for two guests at the BRLSI reception. Our next Members' Art Exhibition is scheduled for Spring 2020.
