As a member you will receive our hugely popular newsletter, attend our talks and events and most importantly, you will play your part in making Gloucester the best small city in the UK to live, work and play. Membership is open to anyone interested in the history and heritage of Gloucester. Membership Fees provide income to enable Gloucester Civic Trust to continue its work in the City.

Your support is very important to us. You will be warmly welcomed whether you wish to become an active volunteer, train as a Tour Guide, or merely maintain an interest in the work of the Trust.
