Rupert Brooke Society

The society was set up in the year 1999 when the museum was also opened to the public. The aim of the society is to promote greater interest in the works and life of Rupert Brooke.


Members will receive one journal per annum containing articles relating to Rupert Brooke. There will also be a newsletter sent out to members each year containing reviews, news and society information such as future coming events to be held.

The society offers three meetings a year. They normally take place in Grantchester, Rugby or other places associated with Brooke. Events take place in the months of April, August and November.

Members of the committee encourage society members to offer quality material relating to Brooke for publication in the annual journal. Articles are also considered for the newsletter.

Fresh ideas would be welcome and considered from new and old members alike.

Subscription rates are £10 for UK residents and £15 for overseas residents per year. Joining fees can be paid by cheque or standing order, the later being preferable as this will cut the administrative costs.


About the Museum

In 1999 the small Rupert Brooke Museum opened its door to the public. The museum sits on the left hand side of the car park to the Orchard Tea Garden.

The museum houses photographs and text of a brief biography on Rupert Brooke. There are also some artefacts, copies of letters, programmes and books on display.

We hold a small collection of books about Brooke and indeed many copies of his poems. Visitors are more than welcome to take time to sit and read any of our museum reference books.

There is a book which visitors can sign and leave any comments they wish to make concerning The Orchard and Rupert Brooke museum.
