Who can attend

Everyone in our Quaker community is welcome. You don't have to be a member. For people over 18 there is no charge to come to Yearly Meeting. We do ask you to register in advance so that we can send you information and help you with access or other needs. Registration also let us know how many people to expect. We can then prepare and make Yearly Meeting a greener event.

If you are not a member please ask someone you know from your meeting to email the Yearly Meeting clerk: ym@quaker.org.uk. They should tell the clerk that you'd like to come and say why. This person can then help you prepare and tell you what will happen at Yearly Meeting.

Yearly Meeting is an all-age event. Running alongside the main Yearly Meeting sessions there will be three age-related programmes. There is more information on the Children and young people's page.

Friends from other yearly meetings

Visiting Friends who are in membership but not of Britain Yearly Meeting, “may attend the sessions of the Yearly Meeting on producing a travelling minute or letter of introduction signed by the clerk of their own meeting or otherwise satisfying the clerk of their membership" ( Quaker faith & practice 6.14 (offsite link)). Please send these in advance to the Yearly Meeting Office, or deliver it to the Clerk's table after the first session.
