Find Your Local Branch
Did you know we have local branches throughout England where you can meet fellow collectors ?
The table below is a list of them all, plus the dates of their next meetings, and if you click on any name in column one you will be transported to their homepage / website, with contact details, meeting places and times, local information, etc.
All Cartophilic Society members are welcome to visit any branch in person, whether they live in that area, are holidaying, or have made the trip just for the day. At all events you will find new friends to chat to and swap stories and cards with. Some of the meetings are just an informal gathering for a few hours – others (marked on our calendar below with asterisks) are special events, which can last all day, often including auctions, displays and card dealers.
If you are planning on travelling a long distance to attend any of these meetings it is always a good idea to contact the branch secretary (listed on each homepage / website) and check on last minute changes. This is especially important now we are publishing the dates right up to the end of this year!

BRANCHES GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN
We regret that the following Branches are no longer in operation. However we add them here in fond memory of the pleasure they brought to so many collectors, that their rich histories might be preserved rather than forgotten, and in the hope that one day a local collector may read of their tales, and breathe of new life into their veins…
I realise that this is a bit late, but I hope that everyone who attended the Convention had a great time and found plenty of cards to remove from their wants lists. I thoroughly enjoyed the event, the venue was superb with great lighting and plenty o
