The Society welcomes new Members both in the UK and Overseas. Although the Society encourages interest from children, it does not have a junior membership.

Members of The Beatrix Potter Society receive four issues of the Journal and Newsletter each year. This publication contains details of the Society’s talks, meetings and events, often held in London but also elsewhere in the UK and in North America, as well as of visits to places connected with Beatrix Potter. There are reviews of books and exhibitions and notices of forthcoming Beatrix Potter related events throughout the world, Members letters, and news of Beatrix Potter collections and merchandise. The Society holds regular International Study Conferences in the UK and occasionally in the USA. There is an active publishing programme.

Membership is from January to December, annually.
