West Africa Study Circle



The study circle meets twice a year in London, usually at the Royal Philatelic Society's premises in Abchurch Lane. These events are normally in early March and November. An informal meeting is also held in Salisbury during June/July each year. Check our meetings page.

A weekend conference is held every second year. The venue varies: the 2019 conference was in Oxford and plans for 2021 are now in hand for Redditch, September 24th to 26th. Previous venues have included Cheltenham, York, Leamington, Chester, Buxton, Warwick, Edinburgh.. These have been most successful with many members bringing their partners to enjoy the social side of the weekend.


A society postal auction is held twice a year allowing members the opportunity to buy and sell specialised material at low commission rates.

The Spring auction is timed to allow viewing at the society's London meeting for those able to attend. The biennial conference includes a live auction.
