JOINING THE NOEL COWARD SOCIETY
The Noël Coward Society was established in 1999, the centenary year of his birth, for all those who have an interest in the man and his works.
 
We are fortunate to have the generous patronage of Mr. Graham Payn, the executor of the Noël Coward Estate, and the support of the Noël Coward Centenary Committee. Sir John Mills is our Honorary President and Miss Judy Campbell, Miss Moira Lister, and Mr. Sheridan Morley, are our Honorary Vice Presidents.
 
Our objectives are:
  • To provide a forum for all those who admire and appreciate the work, style and times of Noel Coward.
  • To promote knowledge and awareness of the life and works of Noel Coward
  • To support appropriate charities, especially the work of the Noel Coward Foundation.

We are the official international society. We are based in the UK, but welcome members from anywhere in the world. As soon as we see a cluster of members in any location we encourage meetings and events at convenient venues.
 
Membership Fees
Membership costs UK £25 p.a., or its equivalent in any other currency. For bona fide students still in full-time education, we have a reduced fee of UK £15 p.a. Members who pay by standing order from their bankers receive a reduction to £20 for full year membership. Corporate Membership is currently £100 which entitles all members of an organisation to receive the benefits of the Society, a free advertising banner on the Society's Home page and a single copy of our newsletter, Home Chat. Payment is accepted by a cheque against a UK bank account, or by a Visa/MasterCard credit card.

Officially, The Noel Coward Society is the trading name of Noel Coward Limited, a company wholly owned by the Noel Coward Foundation, a registered charity. The Society is autonomous, run by an executive committee.
