Information for members regarding forthcoming exhibitions and events.

How did you do?

We hope you enjoyed Clive Duncan's Visual Quiz for the New Year, it was certainly a challenge, and gave the grey matter a good workout. If you think you have got as many as you can, please download the visual-quiz-answer-sheet.pdf and see how you did!



The RGA Council are very aware of the impact that COVID-19 has had on our usual programme of activities this year, and it has been a difficult year, particularly so for some.

In light of this we have decided that subscriptions due 1st January will be voluntary for 2021.

We will continue to pursue opportunities for online activities to share with our members until we can meet in person again and we will be producing our Annual Review in the spring as usual. Although we cannot organise meet ups or physical exhibitions at the moment, we do still have expenses to cover, and of course no income from exhibitions. We do ask those who can, to support the RGA through this difficult time with their annual subscription.

If you pay by standing order and do not feel you can pay this year, please cancel it for this year as we are not in the position to refund subscriptions after they are paid.

Membership status will not be affected either way.
