Patrons’ Club

Patrons' Club logo


The Patrons’ Club welcomes applications for membership from People from all walks of life from within and without of the Gainsborough Constituency who are interested in supporting the future of the Gainsborough Constituency Conservative Association and the wider Conservative Party.

The Patrons’ Club is an exclusive group of local Conservative Party supporters. Membership includes subscription to the Conservative Party, but does not necessarily mean becoming involved in the day-to-day business of the Association - although you are very welcome to do so if you wish.

Subscriptions are paid by Cheque or Standing Order. Individuals can subscribe for £20 a month, whilst couples can subscribe for £30 a month.

You can join the Patrons’ Club by completing the form attached at the bottom of this page.


There are no formal meetings of the members of the Patrons’ Club, the main event of the Patrons' Club is the Annual Club Lunch held usually in November each year, and for the past three years held at the RAF Club, Piccadilly, in central London.

Both of the social events are held in prestigious venues. The Lunch is held in London and the Dinner is held within or near to the constituency, and has in the past been held at Brockesby Hall. In 2012 the Dinner was held at The Jews House in Lincoln.

  • Rt. Hon. Andrea Leadsom MP - Lord President of the Council and Leader of the House of Commons (2017)
