Welcome to The William Herschel Society

Our aim is to spread knowledge of the life, work, and times of Herschel and his family, and to encourage greater understanding today of the subjects he studied.

We do this in several ways:

2020 Caroline Herschel Prize Lecture Competition is now open. Click here for more information on how to make an application by 30th April 2020.

We always welcome new members. You can join online now using our subscriptions partner membermojo or download and complete our Application Form and post it to us at the Herschel Museum of Astronomy.

As a registered UK charity, the Society is naturally very happy to receive donations at any time! Any amount sent to us over and above your subscription will be treated as a donation. If you are a UK taxpayer you can increase the value of your subscription by 25% by signing the Gift Aid Declaration Form.
