The following lays out further details for membership subscriptions and other fees for Leeds Gilbert & Sullivan Society.

Do Ask

For anyone who will struggle to pay the subscription and fees, do just ask for a private chat with one of the Committee.  We will listen and look to find a fair solution.

Student:  see specific information below.

Overview

We have two ways in which members contribute to the Society.  We have a yearly Membership Subscription for the Society and an additional Show Fee paid by those involved in each production.  See below for details on both.  If anything is unclear, please ask a Committee Member.

1. Membership Subscriptions

To be a member of Leeds Gilbert & Sullivan Society you pay the yearly subscription fee. For 2018/19 this is £40 per member.

The year is 1st September to 31st August, and membership fee will normally be paid in by the end of October each year.

If anyone would find it easier to pay in instalments, that can be accommodated as £10 a month, but please align this with us first.

Lifetime Members do not pay this subscription.

2. Show Fee

To perform in a Leeds G&S Show you also pay a Show Fee.  For 2018/19 this is £70 for each production.

The Show Fee is due from each of us who are an on-stage performing member of the company.  There will be obvious situations where it does not apply (e.g. a stage hand moving set around).  The Show Fee is due for each Main Show (normally performed in Spring) and our secondary Autumn Show.

This should be paid by the first floor rehearsal for the show.  So, for Guys & Dolls we ask for all payments by the end of January 2019.

Concerts and similar are not considered a full production, so no Show Fee involved.  Just ask if unsure in each case.

The Show Fee is payable by all, including Lifetime Members and paid professionals.

Again, anyone who would find it easier, there is the option to pay over instalments - please confirm this with Janet first

STUDENTS

We ask Students to pay 50%.  So half the membership fee (£20) and half the show fee when they perform (£35).

Payment Process

The Committee's preference is that Members pay through the My Donate site.  However, we understand that some will want to pay in different ways, so we can also accept any of the following.
