Membership fees have not been taken since early 2020 due to the cancellation of the main agricultural show but as of 16th December 2021 we will be opening up the membership application process once again.

NADAS is a registered Charity number 1003898 and 100% of membership joining fees are used to further the Society’s charitable works.

The Society’s main aim is to promote agriculture, horticulture, forestry, rural crafts and skills for the benefit the general public and also to enhance the countryside – Given its importance plus the public’s growing awareness on farming, food production and countryside issues in the current climate, it is our wish to actively pursue this with renewed energy in 2022.

The Board of Trustees have decided to reduce the number of membership categories open for applications from 9, down to 3 which are:  Annual Member, Under 25’s  and Life Membership. These Categories will be reviewed again for 2023.

The annual membership cost for 2022:

  • Annual Member          – £50
  • Under 25’s                     – £25
  • Life Membership        – £1,200

Membership includes:

(Entry to the NADAS Agricultural Show with forward parking – if held in 2022)

(Exclusive access to the Members Enclosure at the 2022 NADAS Agricultural Show – if held)

Quarterly complimentary NADAS Newsletter

Invitations throughout the year to attend the Society’s exclusive ‘Member only’ social promotional and educational events.

AGM Invitation and voting rights at the AGM

Privileges of Membership are NOT transferable.

Membership application Forms are available to download or can be emailed to you by contacting or please telephone 01635 247111 to talk through the application process.

For numerous reasons, not least the December worsening Covid situation, the Board are not in a position to guarantee a main agricultural show in 2022. A final decision will be announced by February 2022.  With or without the main show we will be putting on an exciting, new programme of Membership Only events throughout the year, as mentioned in our December Newsletter.

By joining the society as a member for 2022 you will directly helping the Society work on the charitable aims and educational programmes.

The Board have also recently changed the Charity Commission information to allow NADAS to accept Gift Aid donations.  If you feel able to make Gift Aid donation to the Society, please do contact the show office on Tel: 01635 242156 to help arrange this.
