Join the OEC

Membership of the Old Edinburgh Club is open to everyone, whether living in Edinburgh or further afield.

Join us and share in our interest in Edinburgh history. You will be invited to our regular programmes of lectures and visits and can view our talks on-line, live and for a short period afterwards. Each year you receive a copy of our authoritative, illustrated Book of the Old Edinburgh Club. We welcome your participation in Club activities and hope you make new friends and acquaintances.

Our membership year runs from 1st September. The annual subscription for individuals is £20, and for joint membership £25. There is a special rate of £15 for under 25 year olds.

The Club is funded by members’ subscriptions, Gift Aid relief where a declaration has been made, and donations and legacies from members and well-wishers. We are registered as a Scottish Charity (SC006177).

Note on Gift Aid

Please note that if you pay less Income and Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations across all Charities, it is your responsibility to pay any difference. You may cancel your Gift Aid declaration with us at any time.
If you are unsure whether your donations qualify for Gift Aid tax relief, please ask us, or refer to the help sheet IR65 on the HMRC web site –
