UK Clubs and societies

  • Quekett Microscopical Club: Established in 1865 the QMC is based in the UK but welcomes International members. Membership is open to all, from beginner to advanced amateur and professional microscopists. The Club publishes the Quekett Journal of Microscopy twice yearly which provides peer-reviewed papers on all aspects of microscopy; our informal Bulletin, also published twice yearly, provides reports of meetings and informal articles. Club meetings are held monthly at the Natural History Museum in London with regional meetings across the UK on a yearly or twice yearly basis as well as international Zoom meetings.   LINK
  • Manchester Microscopical Society: The Society was founded in 1850 to provide for the pursuits of those interested in microscopy and natural history. Today it has around 100 members and provides meetings where talks are given by amateurs or professionals and members can provide exhibits, exchange gossip, just keep in touch, use the library or buy small goods. Sometimes we also have a microscope auction of donated microscopes old and new. We publish a Newsletter (Micro Miscellanea) four times a year, the occasional book or booklet on hints and tips or items of local historical interest, and have an Internet site with useful links, images and information about one of our famous founders, the microscope maker, microphotographer and inventor John Benjamin Dancer. LINK
  • Leeds Microscopical Society: The LMS is an amateur-friendly club based in the Leeds UK and, but for COVID-19, normally meets regularly.  Membership is open to anyone with an interest in using or collecting microscopes or slides. LINK
