Scarborough Philatelic Society was founded in 1938, and offers stamp collectors in and around Scarborough friendly and informal meetings, opportunities to buy and exchange material, and regular meetings where members can see varied displays and meet fellow collectors. We welcome both beginners and experienced stamp collectors and postal historians. Our experienced collectors are always ready to help new collectors to develop and improve their collections with advice, to answer questions and try to solve philatelic problems.

We are affiliated to the Yorkshire Philatelic Association (YPA), and our members enjoy the additional benefits this brings in participation in national and regional exhibitions and conventions.

Our Annual Subscriptions are:
Seniors: 2.00 per year or 5.00 for 3 years
Juniors: Free


Visitors are always welcome at our meetings. If you are a stamp collector why not come along and find out more about our Society? See our Syllabus below for details of our meetings.

We meet at Scarborough Library on first Tuesday of the month (unless this is a Bank Holiday when we meet on the following Tuesday), commencing at 7pm.
