We usually meet twice a year in London. Meetings are also occasionally held at other locations in the UK.

Anybody interested in perfins is welcome to attend our meetings.

Our most recent meeting was the Annual General Meeting in London on 27th October 2018, attended by 20 members. Officers gave their annual reports, which will be summarised in the December edition of the Bulletin, and there was a small room auction.

Four members exhibited a wide range of perfins, including:
Newspaper Perfins by Melyvn Green (pdf)
Welsh Perfins 1868-1880 by Maurice Harp (pdf including additional material not shown at the meeting)
G.B. Underprints by Andy Donaldson

It was resolved at the AGM to hold a regional meeting during 2019 and a meeting at the London 2020 International Stamp Exhibition, in addition to the two regular London meetings each year. Dates and venues to be confirmed.

Next meeting:

Spring Meeting 2019

Date: Saturday 4th May 2019
Time: 12 - 4pm
Venue: Royal Philatelic Society London, 41 Devonshire Place, London W1G 6JY

As a one-off, we are holding our Spring Meeting at the Royal. The front entrance is in Devonshire Street.
The nearest underground station is Regents Park (Bakerloo line).
The second nearest is Baker Street (Bakerloo, Circle, Jubilee, Metropolitan & Hammersmith and City lines).
There are shallow stairs from the ground floor entrance to the 1st floor meeting room and steeper stairs to the basement toilets. Unfortunately there are no lifts.

We expect to hold a regional meeting during 2019 and our AGM in London in Autumn 2019.

London 2020 International Stamp Show

Date: Tuesday 5th May 2020
Time: 2pm - 3.50pm
Venue: British Design Centre, Islington, London

The Society has decided to book a room at the London 2020 International to publicise the Society by showing member displays and have volunteers on hand to answer questions, and of course for members to meet. This will be in addition to our usual Spring meeting elsewhere in London.

Meetings are a chance for members to discuss Society matters, to trade perfins and to chat about perfins in general.
Members are encouraged to bring along some pages of their collection, or anything else that might be of interest, to show.
The meetings are informal and all are welcome.

If you are not yet a member, drop in and meet us and find out a bit more about perfins and the Perfin Society.
