The London and South region was founded in 1980 and its area covers London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Hampshire, Kent, South Oxfordshire, Surrey and the Isle of Wight.
We are the largest Region, with the most members in the UK. We meet on a monthly basis in central London where there are good transport links to most parts of our Region. Please do check for planned engineering works on your route and let us know at the earliest opportunity if you are unable to make it; we are often oversubscribed and have a waiting list.
- Practical Workshops are normally £20 for members and £25 for non-members (plus materials fee where required)
- Visits, Demonstrations & Talks are normally £15 members and £20 for non-members
- Christmas Meeting (includes Suppliers Fair plus a Buffet Lunch) is £10
- NB:Please check individual listings for exact cost of each event.
Please scroll down for news and announcements on our Noticeboard or check our Instagram page @societyofbookbinders. We are also on Twitter @SoBLandS.
Our next event will be our Conference in Bath at the end of Aug 2019. Please follow the link from our Home page for more details.
Our next Regional events begin again in September 2019.
If you are already a member you will be informed directly, so please ensure your membership is up to date or join up! Non-members are very welcome, at all our events, but there are perks to being a member, such as discounts, but do hurry as places fill very quickly. If you miss out on an event don’t worry, contact us as we operate a waiting list and can accommodate observers at some events. We also repeat our more popular events wherever possible. Students also qualify for a reduced rate membership.
