Join Red Rope, a great way to get out and meet people!

How do I join – and what does it cost?

Red Rope has an annual membership fee. Red Rope charges are variable according to income – so high income members pay a bit more and lower income pay a bit less. That way we share the costs of the club fairly. See the membership charges page for more details.

New! Join up online!

If you want to join online you can – and you can choose to pay using a one-off bank debit, or send a cheque if you prefer.

For online payment we use a service called WebCollect, and a payment system called GoCardless which takes a one-off debit from your bank account.

The link below will open a tab with our WebCollect page:
