Find Your Local Branch

Click on any of the branch names below, and you will now find yourself at their online home page or website, complete with contact details, meeting places, meeting times, and illustrations of some local cards (and we welcome local assistance with these!) 

All Cartophilic Society members are welcome to visit any of these branches 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 a host of fellow card-collectors and new friends to chat to and swap stories and cards with.

Some of these meetings are just an informal gathering, only on for a few hours, a taster as it were of collecting in that area. Others (marked on our calendar below with asterisks) are special events, which can last all day, often have auctions, displays and many more dealers. For more details on these please contact the relevant Secretary. And remember many of these auctions allow postal bidding!

If you are planning on travelling a long distance to attend any of these meetings it is always a good idea to telephone or email the branch secretary in advance to ensure there have been no last minute changes. This is especially important now we are publishing the dates right up to the end of this year!

The following weblinks will take you to our current Overseas Branches. Whilst travelling there in person may not be possible, a virtual visit can be just as entertaining. 

Our two Antipodean branches are both full websites already and can be found at:

Our South African homepage is a work in progress but we are starting work on uploading card galleries!

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 perhaps breathe of new life into their veins
