Membership meet-ups

Our meet-ups bring together experts from across the Legion with its members.

They are an opportunity for our members to start a conversation, connect with others and find out more about the difference they're making. 

We have events all across the country throughout the year so do check back regularly for more updates.

For more information on our meet-up events, please email us on

We look forward to seeing you at a Meet-Up event soon.

“It was a great opportunity to network with colleagues and exchange ideas.”

Ken Mackay

Chairman of the Knowle Club

Who will be there?

Everyone is invited, so bring along friends, family members, and anyone else you know who is interested in the Legion.

Our area teams will be on hand to provide local information whilst other teams, such as fundraising and volunteering, will be able to provide specialist information.

Why should I attend?

Our members are a vital part of our national network and are involved in all that we do – from fundraising during the Poppy Appeal to providing local community support. It’s your chance to ask the team your questions and explore the topics that matter to you. 

We share inspiring stories and examples of where branches and members have really made a difference in their communities. We’ll also give advice on how you can encourage others to follow in your footsteps. Plus you'll also get lots of free goodies from the day too!

“All members who attended expressed their pleasure in the day’s events and would attend another meet up.”

Robert Plumb

Chairman of the Hednesford Branch

What will the day look like?

Membership meet-ups are an opportunity to explore the work of the Legion at your own pace, make connections and socialise with staff and members alike.

Each event has a series of break-out sessions alongside the main exhibition, where you can learn more about particular topics.
