to the local Philatelic Society and Stamp Club
serving the St Albans area.


We believe we have much to offer if you :

  • don’t collect but would enjoy our talks and displays

  • are looking for a new hobby

  • have a slumbering collection

  • are an active collector/philatelist unaware of our existence


The Beds & Herts Philatelic Society held its first meeting back in 1933 at Bunty’s Cafe in Harpenden High Street. Since then much has changed in the High Street and so has our name - we are now the St Albans, Harpenden & District Philatelic Society – but still thriving, with monthly meetings from September to May in the School Room, Childwickbury.

So what do we have to offer.........
  • an evening out with interesting displays on a wide range of topics and good company.

  • the opportunity to buy or sell stamps from your home which members may do through our “Circulating Packet”- click here for details.

  • a philatelic Library enabling members to consult or borrow books by prior arrangement via our monthly meetings or by visiting our Librarian in St Albans .For further details telephone 01727 860073. Click here for details of the books held in the Library.

  • friendly advice - if you would like it!

New members are always welcome, so please take a look at our website and feel free to come along to one or two meetings as a visitor with no obligation to join.


Otherwise simply click here for joining information and a Membership Application Form. If you would like more information please contact our Secretary on p.mellor@btinternet.com or 01582 762284

We regret that owing to the coronavirus emergency we have had to cancel our monthly meetings until further notice.
However we are pleased to say that the operation of the Circulating Packet has now been resumed.


In view of the above, we are running a feature (below) showing items from our members' collections as some compensation for the absence of our usual displays, whilst demonstrating the range of our hobby
