Membership of the ESU

Since our foundation in 1918, membership has been the lifeblood of the ESU. From Evelyn Wrench’s founding vision of an organisation dedicated to promoting peace and unity through the commonality of the English language, to the dynamic and varied charity we are today, membership has always been an important part of our organisation. 

As a member, you will receive exclusive access to the members’ facilities at Dartmouth House, the Grade II* listed Mayfair townhouse which serves as the home of the ESU. We run a vibrant and varied programme of events at Dartmouth House, including unique concerts led by our Artist in Residence, James Pearson, the Artistic Director at the world-famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. Members receive discounts to these, as well as the host of other events organised by our 35 branches across England & Wales.
