Medats usually costs £10.00 per year for membership, and you can join "on the door".

I think "anyone" can go, but there is a web site, and contact e-mail addresses, so it might be worth just checking if you are bothered. They do have some really interesting "days" there.

I went to one of their meetings last year, and I'm not a member. I think I just paid on the door. I'll email Kirstie Buckland (who has organised it), and ask her.
