    Do I need to be a member to go on your events?

    You do not need to be a member of the Centre to go on our events but a small surcharge will apply. A few events are restricted to members of the Centre and these will be identified in the event details.

    Do I need to be a member of the Trust to go on your events?

    No, but if an event takes place on National Trust property, you will need to show proof of National Trust membership, or have a valid National Trust volunteer card in order to avoid paying normal admission charges.

    Do I need to be a member of the National Trust to join the Staffordshire Centre?

    To join our group you should be either a National Trust member, have a National Trust volunteer card or be a member of National Trust staff.

    What is Associate Membership?

    Associate Membership can be offered to long standing Centre Members who have ceased to be members of the National Trust.  They would not have voting rights at General Meetings
