Membership

We welcome new members who can enjoy our many individual and family events.

You do not have to be a member of the Services to become a club member and are most welcome to apply for membership to use, attend events and enjoy the Club’s facilities.

To become a R.B.L Club member you can take one of these options:

  • A) Join the Club with Branch membership (Royal British Legion membership)
  • B) Join the club with membership of another branch

Please  remember to view our events and entertainment pages for some of your membership benefits.

If your address, phone, mobile or email address changes please do let us know.

We are a private Club, not a pub so please note all guests  must be signed in on arrival at the lounge bar, like yourself they must abide by the rules of the Club and are your responsibility. We also have a dress code.  In the interests of the members and our license we do conduct membership checks, please keep your card with you, we do not aim to offend by asking to see your membership card.

Membership is an Annual Renewal

For the majority of our members this will be the 1st of October, the renewal process will be the same for all.
Historically the British Legion would take your membership fee and then pass the club part to the club, this is no longer happening

So from now on the membership fee will be broken into 2 parts which have to be paid separately

The Renewal fee is £34

Membership of The Royal British Legion Charity
This fee is £20 (Membership fee £17 and Branch Subscription Fee £3)

Club Membership
This Fee is £14

MEMBERSHIP FEES

Annual membership consists of the Royal British Legion, Club & Branch which totals only £34 for 2016/17  for existing member renewals.

To maintain the club to a high standard within the terms of the RBL License at only £14 for Club annual membership with all the facilities we provide, this is truly remarkable and excellent value. Especially when 100% of this goes towards the RBL rent we pay. It does rely on members using the club facilities and events to support this great price and to help us balance the additional difference we have to add to the rent demand and run the complete club. Membership fees may be reviewed at the Club’s A.G.M.
