The following lays out further details for membership subscriptions and other fees for Leeds Gilbert & Sullivan Society.
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.
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 2021/22 this is £40 per member.
The year is 1st April to 31st March, and membership fee is due in April each year.
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 recent productions this has been £70 for each production. We will confirm the Show Fee for our next major production, Sweeney Todd as soon as possible.
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, if and when applicable, for our secondary Autumn Show.
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.
We ask Students to pay 50%. So half the membership fee (£20) and half the show fee when they perform (£35).
From March 2021 the society will use MemberMojo to manage memberships and our preference is payment through this secure system. Please complete the form below to join us or click the link below to renew if you're an existing member using MemberMojo.
However, we understand that some will want to pay in different ways, so we can accept any of the following.
2. Online via Personal Internet Banking
Ask anyone on the committee who can provide you with the Bank Details.
Please, clearly mark with your Surname, and ideally a shorthand for the payment (e.g. "Pascoe_Subs")
