Glass Circle Membership - Benefits



  Regular Meetings

  for Glass Society members and their guests:



    Several meetings are held each year with talks covering a wide        variety of glass-related subjects, occasionally given by international speakers.

  Lecture meetings in 2019 are in March, April, May, June, October, November and December. (see our 'meetings' page)

  Following the AGM, in October or November, interesting and often obscure glass objects brought to the meeting by members are discussed. 

    Meetings are held in central London, within easy reach of Euston and Kings Cross mainline stations, bus routes and underground stations. The meetings start at 6.30pm with light refreshments, followed by the lecture at 7.15pm.  Members are invited to bring guests but are requested to advise the Secretary in advance.

  There is a charge of £10 per lecture meeting for members and £15 for guests, which includes pre-lecture refreshments of tea, coffee and sandwiches.

  (There is no charge for members attending the Annual General Meeting in the Autumn.)



Glass Society Publications:



  'Glass Matters'

  Members receive a comprehensive magazine three times a year, fully illustrated, containing glass-related articles, and often synopses of previous talks. Also included are book and exhibition reviews together with notification of forthcoming glass events.  Members are encouraged to submit notes and enquiries about pieces in their collections that other members may be able to help identify or provide further clarification.

   The Glass Journal

  The Glass Society publishes a journal as an occasional volume, every three or four years containing refereed articles on glass contributed by both British and international glass experts.

   Glass Visits:


 The Society organises annual visits to places which relate to the history

of glass, glass making, and members' interest in glass collecting, both in the UK and abroad. (These are charged to participants at cost.)

  The Society's long established relationship with museums, auction houses, and dealers occasionally extends to private views of exhibitions and auctions.
