We are a voluntary association of National Trust supporters whose objects are to promote and prosper the work of the National Trust (particularly in Kent and East Sussex) and to promote social activities to make membership of the National Trust more enjoyable. Membership of the Centre is open to anyone interested in furthering these objects.
Since starting in 1975 the Centre has donated over a quarter of a million pounds to a variety of projects.
Speakers on a variety of subjects are engaged for meetings on Thursday afternoons in Beckenham and Wednesday evenings in Bromley. Visits are arranged throughout the year - during the winter to places nearer to home and in the summer further afield by coach.
Our members enjoy reduced price admission to our meetings as well as the opportunity to take part in our visits, social events and holidays. We publish a newsletter three times a year with full details of our forthcoming programme.
Membership of the Beckenham & Bromley Centre is available to all supporters of the National Trust, there is no requirement to be a National Trust member or volunteer.
Our annual membership fee is £15 per person and our membership year is from January to December but for those joining in September, October, November or December their membership will run until December of the following year.
In addition to membership, members may buy an annual season ticket for £40 per person which will admit them to all our meetings free of charge.
