    The Prospero Society is open to BBC Club members who have officially retired from the BBC along with their spouses (as long as they are also members of the BBC Club). Its purpose is to promote activities to alleviate the wrench that occurs when one retires and is deprived of the contacts made during the years of working in the BBC.

    Helping you get TOGETHER with friends or colleagues, or perhaps meet new ones. Prospero Society is the only section of the BBC Club run by and for retired BBC Staff and their partners.

    Its aim is to enable BBC pensioners to meet regularly for an organized programme of events.A regular newsletter keeps members informed of our activities.

    Activities include lunches, tours of museums, major entertainment venues and buildings of historical interest, theatre trips and a traditional Christmas lunch - all at subsidized prices for Prospero Society members.

    Cost to join £15 per year.
