Members support and help us to keep our charitable mission of giving young disadvantaged and disabled young people a sporting chance.
Individuals can become members to be part of a vibrant cricket based charity and club, supporting recreational cricket for the hardest to reach in our community, with the opportunity to be involved with both national events and those organised by volunteers across the country on a regional basis.
Membership provides benefits including discounts at some of our events, early booking opportunities, the chance to participate in our golf and bridge societies, and to wear with pride the colours of the Taverners.
Become a Member
Membership of the Charity: - £50 joining fee and £100 annual subscription (under 35s £40 a year).
Membership is open to both men and women and is particularly appealing to cricket lovers. As a Lord’s Taverner you would also be a member of the charity under company law and therefore would participate in any votes on the strategy of the charity, its Trustees, or other matters as they arise from time to time.
The Lady Taverners organise events and fundraise for the Charity and have a proud history of doing so for well over 30 years. If you would like to be acknowledged as a Lady Taverner (open to men and women) then please acknowledge this on the Membership Form.
To apply for membership please download the membership form. The application form also includes a section to be completed by your Proposer before the form is sent to us.

Brian Johnston Memorial Trust
The Lord’s Taverners also looks after the Johnners’ Club – preserving the spirit of Brian Johnston in its support for visually impaired cricket and emerging young cricketers as they struggle with the financial demands of attending academies and progressing into the county and (with luck) the international cricket arena.
Membership of the Johnners Club is £50 per annum (or £1,000 for lifetime membership).
As well as supporting its charitable aims you can also sport the Johnners’ colours, receive priority booking for the annual dinner at Lord’s and occasionally access to tickets for major matches at Lord’s.

Our Membership Regions
A significant proportion of our fundraising each year is attributable to our all-volunteer 28 Lord's Taverners Regions and 24 Lady Taverners Regions.
Each Region organises its own fundraising events. Regional Members also play an important role in supporting the grant assessment process, visiting many applicants to help assess their need. The dedication of our Regional Committees and Members is a major strength of the organisation as a whole. Rules governing our Membership are laid out in our code of conduct.
