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 any assistance with these !)
All Cartophilic Society members are welcome to visit any of these branches, 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!
