Members get more

Pay monthly for Membership

To help make Membership more affordable, you can now spread the cost of annual Membership over 10 monthly Direct Debit payments.

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.

Membership renewals

If your membership has recently expired or is nearing expiry, you can continue to enjoy all the benefits of being a member by renewing.

To renew please complete a Membership Renewal Form and return to us by email.

Gift Membership

Give the gift of curiosity and buy Membership as a gift! We'll send you a voucher for you to pass on, or we can send the voucher directly to the recipient with a note from you.

The Gift Membership only starts from the date the recipient redeems the voucher allowing them to benefit from a full year’s Membership.

To give a gift that lasts a year, please complete our Gift Membership Form and return it to us by email. You will then recieve a Gift Membership voucher for you to give to the lucky recipient. 

Direct Debit payments

*After the fire in April 2022, we paused all memberships until we’re ready to welcome everyone back to the building.  To ensure we’re absolutely ‘ready to go’ for when we reopen in 2024, we need to test our payment systems inb late 2023.

If you paid for your membership through Direct Debit, we need to take a temporary payment of 1p as part of the testing. Please don’t worry, this’ll be refunded between 3-5 days. Please feel free to email us on if you have any questions or concerns. *

To make paying for Membership as easy as possible, we offer two Direct Debit schemes.

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

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