Everyone in the Guild is equal, everyone joins as an individual, whether you are a student or run an organisation you first must register as an individual member.

This is a vital means of keeping the Guild’s interests balanced and non-hierarchical. It also means that the community we are so keen to nurture is one of people and personalities, not faceless businesses.

Concession rate

£39 per year
£10 per quarter
(equivalent to £3.25 a month)

We have really tried to make the Guild affordable for everyone. We are aware that as a creative it is sometimes hard to make a living and so we are keen to offer a concessionary membership rate for those people on a low income.

Concessionary membership is for anyone whose annual income is less than the Income Tax Personal Allowance (Currently £11,000 a year)

Student membership

It’s really important to the Guild that we support and embrace the fresh creative talent emerging in our colleges and unis, and support their transition to the working world. We work closely with HE in the city, and would love to see their students join us, giving and taking from the Guild community.

And there will be more…

As we grow, so will our potential to give back to our membership. The Guild is a not for profit organisation and the membership fees we charge cover the running of the Guild and the events hosted.

Therefore, the potential of our work will increase as membership revenue does – the Guild will invest all that revenue back into Guild activity – that means as we grow we’ll be able to offer more events, resources and facilities.
