Welcome to Southampton and District Philatelic Society. We are one of the leading and most active societies in the area and seek to cater for everyone interested in stamps and postal history, whether they are experienced philatelists or collectors new to the hobby.

Our programme covers a diverse range of activities including twice monthly evening meetings with first class speakers, auctions, bourse evenings, and competitions. There is also an afternoon meeting each month.

Owing to the Coronavirus situation all meetings of Southampton and District Philatelic Society, including the planned Society Lunch, are cancelled until further notice, including meetings scheduled for June, July and August. The auction planned for Tuesday, June 16th will go ahead on Wednesday 17th June, as a postal auction only. The programme for the remainder of the year will be reviewed as the situation clarifies. This notice updated 11/05/2020.

Vendors for the auctions may list items for sale by means of an excel spreadsheet. Email our Auction Manager to request a template.

We have a table at HAMPEX each year to meet members old and new. We often organise trips to national philatelic events such as SWINPEX, MIDPEX and STAMPEX. Our full programme may be seen by clicking the Meetings button on the left hand navigation bar.

Members receive Postmark which is published quarterly and contains news of local activities as well as our auction lists insert. In addition there is a busy exchange packet which circulates frequently giving members another opportunity to purchase items to add to their collections. We have an extensive library which is open to members on club nights.

We have another year of bumper philatelic events as listed on our Meetings page for 2020 - our 88th Year.

If you are interested in stamps or philately in general then you cannot afford not to be a member. Just click on the Membership button for more information. For general queries go to the Contacts page.
