Regular Meetings

The Society holds several meetings each year in London or on Zoom (all subject to Covid-19 restrictions). These usually feature a guest speaker but sometimes take the form of panel discussions, or collections of short papers.

In addition we organise occasional day visits to place with a Carrollian connection, such as Oxford or Guildford.

Publications for Sale

The Society has published a variety of books on different aspects of Dodgson’s life and works. These are offered to members, sometimes exclusively or at a discount. Various other bought-in publications are offered from time to time.

The Society’s publication of the unabridged and annotated editions of Lewis Carroll’s Diaries is one of our leading projects.

Access to Research Material and Information

The Society acts as a pool of knowledge and resources. So by joining the Society, members gain access to a vast amount of information and expertise, which might be difficult to obtain otherwise. 

Printed Notification of New Events, Publications, etc.

Although the Society does not make its mailing list available to other organisations, we will distribute advertising material if we feel that it is likely to be of benefit to members. In the past material has included invitations to exhibitions, auctions and other events, programmes and advertisements for festivals, theatre productions, etc.

Other Good Reasons For Joining

Over the years, the Society has been involved in a range of other activities. These include a series of major exhibitions, hosting international conferences and establishing the memorial stone to Lewis Carroll in Westminster Abbey’s Poets’ Corner. The Society also organises four speakers to give free talks on Alice’s Day in Oxford which takes place on the first or second Saturday in July each year.
