Direct Debit payments

To make paying for Membership as easy as possible, we can offer two Direct Debit schemes which both benefit from a 10% discount. Both schemes require a deposit which will be the price of a day visit. This will be taken off the total price of your Membership.

Annual: This is a single Direct Debit payment made each year. Your Membership will automatically renew, so you don’t have to lift to finger to keep supporting We The Curious.

Monthly: We can now offer monthly Direct Debit payment, making Membership more affordable than ever. This is the cost of Membership spread over 10 equal payments made in consecutive months. Your Membership will automatically renew, so you don’t have to lift a finger to keep supporting We The Curious. 


Gift Aid

We The Curious is an educational charity (number 1049954). We need your support to keep our doors open and to continue our work with local schools and communities. 

When you sign up as a member or renew, you have the option to add Gift Aid to your membership as long as you pay enough tax.

This doesn't cost you anything, but it means that We The Curious can claim 25% of the cost of your annual membership fee directly from the government.

If you're elligible to do so, please do! This extra income makes a huge difference to us.
