Why join Hive?

Hive is a registered charity, and joining us helps us to achieve our charitable objectives. Our members help inform what we do and guide our activities – joining lets you have your say and vote at our AGM.

However, there’s much more to membership:

To access discounted prices for courses, you must log in to the site using the same details you became a member with.

Membership is open to everybody over 16 years old. Membership also entitles an adult to bring up to two children under 18 to drop-in sessions (excluding woodwork), provided they are supervised at all times.



annual fee

In recognition of the reduced availability of courses and drop-in space, membership is currently reduced to just £15/year. You can choose to set up a recurring annual payment or just pay for one year.

To renew your membership (if you haven’t set up recurring payments), please log in and follow the instructions to purchase membership.

Note for pre-2020 members

Membership has changed! Your annual membership fee is now a fixed price and will run for one calendar year, whenever you purchase it. We hope that this will make membership simpler and fairer for all.

If you have any questions, please do ask any member of staff or contact the office.

Due to current restrictions, access to Hive's building is limited. More details....
