The Nottinghamshire Philatelic Society

President (2018-19), Professor Brian Clayton  

 

I am delighted to welcome you to the website of The Nottinghamshire Philatelic Society. I have the honour and pleasure of being the Society’s President during the 2018-19 Programme, details of which can be found following the links on the Welcome Page.
The Programme has been devised to cover a wide range of displays over three centuries. There are seven displays from distinguished visitors and a further six from members covering the philatelic output from regions worldwide, as well as several ‘club nights’ of a semi-formal and invariably entertaining nature.
It is my wish, as it is of all members of the Society, that as many people as possible join us this year. If you already have philatelic interests or wish to explore the opportunities to develop them, please come to our Friday meetings. where you will be assured of a warm welcome. You will find all the details of our venue etc., on this web site as well as other links to further information.



 

Information for Visitors

We welcome visitors to join us at our meetings. The venue is the Society of Artists, 71 Friar Lane, Nottingham. We meet on the upper floor Gallery and you have to use the stairs as there is no lift. The Society of Artists is located on the west side of Maid Marian Way, on the approach road to Nottingham Castle. There is no street parking in Friar Lane and motorists are advised to use street parking outside the Castle, entering via Castle Boulevard east-bound. Alternatively, there is a multi-storey car park behind the Britannia Hotel in Maid Marian Way (this is an expensive car park). The Park and Ride facilities at Wilkinson Street and The Forest have frequent trams to Old Market Square and there are bus services terminating in Friar Lane.
There is no visitors' fee charged - we invite visitors to sample a few meetings of our Society free of charge - but only members can apply to use the exchange packet scheme.
Prospective members may also like to know that our programme includes displays given by the Society Members, which generally do not require a detailed philatelic knowledge for appreciating the contents.
