Ever thought of joining our branch?

1. Full Membership

Membership of the NSW Branch of the Richard III Society allows you all the privileges of a member of the worldwide Richard III Society:

  • Members receive all issues of the Ricardian Bulletin.  The Ricardian Bulletin is the Society’s lively and informative members’ magazine published quarterly in March, June, September, and December. Every issue includes topical news and features about the work of the Society and other items of interest which have relevance to Richard III and his times, including media coverage. There are also historical articles focusing on the late fifteenth century; exploring new subjects or re-examining old ones and always based on new research or fresh interpretations. Every issue carries at least one article relating specifically to Richard III.  The magazine aims to keep all members fully informed about Society services and activities at both national and local level.
  • Members receive the annual journal, The Ricardian. The Ricardian is the academic journal of the Richard III Society and contains articles – based on original research – on topics relating to Richard III, his life and times, and on late medieval history and culture.
