About us

                                       The East Suffolk Association welcomes new members.

                                                For membership enquiries please contact:


Members pay an annual subscription (£8 per member or £4 for each additional member residing at the same address) to help cover the Associations running costs. In return members receive the Association’s regular newsletters and priority bookings for visits and events.

Our membership runs from 1 January to 31 December, so your subscription is renewable on 1 January annually. If you join ESNTA from June onwards, your subscription is halved and lasts for the remainder of the year.

Membership is open to paid-up members of the National Trust or its affiliated organisations such as the National Trust for Scotland; holders of a valid NT Volunteer card; spouse or partner of a life member; and National Trust staff.

We arrange a programme of activities with talks, outings, social activities and a coach holiday for the enjoyment of members. We promote the National Trust locally and raise funds for projects at National Trust properties in  East Anglia.    

The next evening meetings will be held at the:

Kesgrave Community and Conference Centre Twelve Acre Approach, Kesgrave, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP5 1JF. 

Doors open at 18:40 with a talk at 19:15pm.   Refreshments are served during the interval. Details can be found in the Evening Meetings page.

There is no meeting admission charge for ESNTA members; but a donation of £3 would be appreciated for visitors, who are most welcome, providing there are spaces available. 

During the year we arrange visits by coach to places of interest. These are usually National Trust properties, some near to home, others further afield.  Details are in the Visits and Outings page.  A coach holiday is also arranged each year; details can be found on the Holiday page.
