Membership of The Joy Club is available to those living in the UK who have entered retirement or semi-retirement. As events and activities at The Joy Club all take place online, you will need to have access to the Internet in order to enjoy member benefits.

Premium membership costs just £5 a month and you get a one-month free trial when you sign up – no card details required!
No – we don’t do that!
Your membership is just for you, so please don’t share your login details, links to live online events or promotional codes with anyone else. However, we would love you to recommend The Joy Club to anyone who you think might enjoy membership (so long as they have entered retirement, have Internet access and are based in the UK). If you share your unique referral code, then both you and your recommendee will earn a free month of Premium membership of The Joy Club, PLUS we’ll plant a tree when they become a member!
We’ll send you a few emails to help you get set up when you join. Our members love our weekly emails where we share inspiration for new activities and exciting member updates BUT if you would like to opt out of emails then you can do so at any time.
You are free to cancel your membership with The Joy Club at any time. We won’t ask for your card details up front, so if you cancel your membership during your free Premium trial then no payment will be taken. If you cancel your membership after providing card details then no further payments will be taken.
As a Premium member, your £5 monthly membership payment will be taken on the same day each month. For example, if you sign up for your free Premium trial on November 5th, then your first membership payment will be taken on 5th December (if you’ve provided your card details). The next membership payment will be taken automatically on 5th January, and so on.
