To become a ROSL member means that you will always have a ‘home away from home’. As well as providing a safe haven from the busy streets of London’s West End and Edinburgh city centre, ROSL provides ...

  • four-star quality bedroom accommodation in London and Edinburgh
  • fine dining in the ROSL Restaurant, Brabourne Room and Cocktail Bar and al fresco dining in our private garden bordering Green Park
  • members access to over 80 reciprocal clubs around the world
  • international networking and business opportunities
  • a vast range of social and cultural events throughout the year including the world-renowned ROSL ARTS Annual Music Scholars Competition
  • catering services and exquisite rooms to hire for private parties, wedding receptions, meetings and conferences

In addition to the benefits listed above, ROSL membership for the past 60 years has contributed toward supporting thousands of outstanding young musicians, artists and writers from the UK and the Commonwealth through sponsorship, travel and exposure opportunities.


Furthermore, in 1995 ROSL established a long-term education welfare project in Namibia to provide school bursaries for young people from very poor communities in remote areas. These projects continue from strength to strength because of the generous donations, legacies and support given by ROSL members.


To become a ROSL member..., as the founder Sir Evelyn Wrench foresaw when he created the ‘Over-Seas Club’ in 1910, to be part of a ‘far-flung brotherhood of individual men and women of diverse creeds and races living widely apart under differing conditions in different latitudes.’


To qualify for ROSL membership you must be proposed by an existing member of the club and seconded by a person of recognised standing. Organisational members are exempt from this process. To check whether you qualify for organisational membership please click here


To become a full member of the club (i.e. to be granted voting rights in the AGM) you must be a member of the Commonwealth. If you are not a member of the Commonwealth you may become an ‘affiliated member’ which simply means you are not entitled to a vote at the AGM.
