2023 Membership Prices

Following three years of static fees, membership prices will rise from 1st January 2023, an average of 5.3%, less than the rate of inflation.

During Covid, membership prices were held at 2020 levels for 2021 and 2022. The compound inflation over this period was over 5.6%. In July 2022 the annual inflation rate was 8.8% and rising.

Rising supplier costs continue to impact the core membership operations of BF and post pandemic the strategy of increasing membership fees in line with annual inflation will be returned to over time.

In light of this it was agreed to increase 2023 membership prices by an average of 5.3%, with compete membership categories increasing by 7.8%.

This was announced at the 2022 AGM following approval by the Home Nations (40% of the BF membership fees go to the affiliated Home Nation).
