Why become a member of The Thomas Hardy Society?
The Thomas Hardy Society welcomes members of all ages and from all walks of life across the world. As Hardy enthusiasts we enjoy ourselves, much as Hardy himself did, in a variety of ways. Benefits of membership to the Hardy Society include:
- Receipt of the Journal three times a year
- Updates via our emailed newsletter
- Priority booking at events
- Reduced fees at events
- Opportunities to visit buildings and places associated with Hardy, not always open to the public
- Access to additional online resources via the Members Portal on the web site
- Participation in our biennial International Conference and Festival, with lectures led by prominent Hardy scholars, walks/tours of the Wessex area, and entertainment each evening during the 8-day event
- A chance to build on friendships and relationships with fellow-students, academics, general readers, lovers of ‘Hardy Country’, and others, and enhance your experience of Hardy the man and author.
