Subscriptions for 2021

The subscription amounts are as follows :

UK Adult £17-00
UK Junior (under 18years) £11-00

For members in the EU - add £7-50
For members in the ROW - add £12-00

Because of the high cost of mailing magazines to overseas members, we are now offering 'digital' memberships whereby Steam Chest magazine can be downloaded in PDF form from an URL that is emailed to participants. All the usual benefits of membership still apply.
The cost of this is £14-00 (adult) or £8-00 (junior).
