Benefits of membership

  • Members receive our quarterly magazine the Fabian Review, a number of policy reports and at least four pamphlets each year.
  • Invitations to Fabian events in London and around the country, including reduced price admission for ticketed events
  • Members of the Fabian Society under the age of 31 automatically become members of Young Fabians
  • Women members automatically become members of the Fabian Women’s Network
  • Members in Wales and Scotland automatically become members of the Welsh and Scottish Fabians
  • Access to the meetings of around 70 local Fabian Societies around the country
Membership subscriptions support our research and editorial projects, especially on key political issues where it is hard to attract sponsorship from non-political organisations.

Membership is open to all

Around 80% of our members are also members of the Labour Party and the Fabian Society is affiliated to Labour, though we guard our editorial, organisational and financial independence fiercely.

  • You don’t have to be a member of the Labour Party to join, though full membership is restricted to those who are eligible to be Labour Party members, and do not belong to another political party.
  • Members of other political parties are welcome to join as associate members, who receive all of the benefits of membership except for participation in Fabian Society elections.
  • If you live overseas, you can still join the Fabian Society.
Affiliation and subscription
  • Organisations which share our values are invited to affiliate to the society. Affiliates include a number of Constituency Labour Parties and all the leading trade unions which affiliate to the Labour Party.
  • Other organisations including companies, public bodies, charities and academic institutions can take out a subscription to the society’s publications.
