* Membership runs from the 1st of September until the 31st of August, inclusive. Becoming a member will bring immediate discounts in attendance fees, and will help us improve the facility for all of our users.

** Premium Membership and Blacksmith Club are rolling subscriptions, paid weekly, for a minimum duration of 12 weeks.

All of our regular, weekday classes are taught drop-in sessions, so you don't need to pre-book or pre-pay, just turn up and participate as and when you are available. We want this service to be as simple and easy to use as possible!

Taught Sessions cost £10 per session (£8 with membership). This goes towards paying for the lease of the venue, paying the Glasgow City Council business rates, paying for utilities, and of course, paying the staff who run the organisation.

There are two multi-session pass cards that you can buy for yourself, or as a gift for someone else:

- There is a 5 session pass for £40 (£35 with membership), which is effectively £8 per session for guests and £7 per session for members.

- There is 10 session pass for £70 (£60 with membership), which is effectively £7 per session for guests and £6 per session for members.

You can buy these multi-session pass cards through our online shop or in person at the venue.

Buying a Premium Membership to The Vanguard Centre will cost £15 per week (a very similar price to attending two drop-in session on a weekly basis), and it will give you completely free access to any and all Taught Sessions, as well as free access to use the Centre for any of the Open Sessions during the week.

Any special seminars or events will be advertised with their own attendance fee, and will not be covered by one of these multi-session passes.
