Observatory Membership - a thoughtful and out of the ordinary gift

If places are available within our limited 100 supporting membership,  you can gift an annual Supporting Membership of the Observatory, or Membership of the North Pennines Astronomy Society, to someone else by simply providing your contact details (if you are not yet a Member yourself), details for the person you wish to give the membership to, and making the appropriate online payment.  That's £15 for a Supporting Membership or £25 for full membership of the Astronomy Society.  Please e-mail in advance to check availability.  Once we have confirmed that there is a supporting membership place (or places) available you can  make your payment and you will receive a confirmation and the recipient will receive an e-mail notification explaining that they have been gifted an annual Membership.

(Note: We use the same system for making payments for gifts as for paying for events, so just ignore the 'Payment for event' field when completing the form to make a gift membership payment)

PLEASE NOTE: When you gift a membership, Supporting Members each need a separate e-mail address

Please note that our automated membership system requires each member to be registered with an individual e-mail address (i.e. two members cannot use the same e-mail address).  Should you wish to register more than one member with the same e-mail address, please apply for either a Family or Corporate supporting membership where there is a single group administrator who can receive e-mail notifications from the Observatory on behalf of a group of members.
