The Nottinghamshire Philatelic Society is comprised of a group of people interested in studying the many branches of philately. We are affiliated to ABPS and The Midland Philatelic Federation. We usually hold our meetings on Friday evenings in Central Nottingham at The Nottingham Society of Artists' Upstairs Gallery, 71 Friar Lane. In the winter months (November to April) we have two meetings per month and in the summer months (May to October) one per month, but please check the dates and details on our meetings schedule page.
Meetings commence at 7.15 pm. Street parking is charged at £2 from 7pm. Visitors are welcome and there is no visitors' fee charged. Unfortunately, there is a steep staircase at Friar Lane; however, the Greater Nottingham Co-operative Philatelic Society and Radcliffe Philatelic Society meet in rooms which have access for wheel chairs.
Philatelic activities in the Nottingham Area include:
• Meetings : The calendar of The Nottinghamshire Philatelic Society.
• An opportunity to meet and discuss the hobby with fellow collectors.
• Newsletter : a quarterly publication of members' contributions.
• Circuit Packets: members can buy and sell philatelic items.
