After signing up, you will receive notification by email from

PayPal that your subscription has been received, and Six

Join Six of One - Our twelve-month "season" commences in April each year and after joining you will receive at least three mailings spread equidistantly over the 12 month period which will include the full colour magazine, "Contact Imminent" and other items. If you join later than April, we will send you exactly the same content but this will be over a shorter period. An invitation to re-join will be sent with your final mailing of the current season.

 

Please Note - Membership year runs from April 1st – March 31st 

 

The mailing package is the same for everyone but, as it comes from the UK, the cost of postage is higher to other countries which is why there are different rates dependent on your location. SPECIAL NOTE: Exchange rates are beyond our control and it might sometimes be necessary to alter subscription rates outside the UK to compensate.

 

 

Select the appropriate button ABOVE to enter ‘New Members’ or ‘Renewal’ secure patyment pages and select the payment panel for the subscription rate applicable to your country of residence and click the "Paypal Payments" button alongside it. You can opt for an "Individual membership" or alternatively a "Joint membership" if you have another person at your same address who would like to come along to what would normally be members-only events. NB: If you opt for the latter, please also tell us the full name of the joint member.

 

 

 

 

  

  PORTMEIRICON

 

Join in the fun of the annual “The Prisoner” convention, held in the grounds of Portmeirion, the colourful setting that doubled for “The Village” in the TV series.

 

With a full programme of both inside and outside events, the convention is a must-attend for every enthusiast of The Prisoner or those interested in cult television generally.

 

The current Six of One convention team have been organising conventions at Portmeirion since 2001 and each year strive to make the next convention even better. Conventions are self-financing and the organisation, preparation, setting up and running of the event each year is on a completely voluntary basis, provided by a dedicated group of people. Conventions are for members and are always promoted and run in a very friendly atmosphere. Six of One would like to thank Portmeirion and all their staff for all of their support and the continued success of Portmeiricon.

The Prisoner

 

Patrick McGoohan plays a man who resigns from a top secret position and is abducted from his London home. He finds himself in a beautiful village where everything is bright and cheerful – the people, their clothes, the buildings, the flowers. But despite this rosy exterior, the village serves a sinister purpose.

 

People are forcibly brought there in order to have their valuable knowledge protected or extracted. Everyone in the village is assigned a number instead of a name – the prisoner is Number Six. Chief interrogator and administrator is Number Two, but he isn’t the boss – an unseen Number One is the boss.

 

Failure is not tolerated in the village, and most episodes feature a new Number Two, though some are privileged to return for a second chance to break Number Six and discover why he resigned. The Prisoner struggles to keep this information from his captors and to find out which side runs the village and where it is. He strives to discover the identity of Number One , and above all, he attempts to escape.

SIX OF ONE, established in 1977, is a non-commercial society and is the only official appreciation society for THE PRISONER television series. Six of One is administered by a small number of enthusiasts, all unpaid volunteers working in their own free time. There is no "head" of the society, all decisions are made by democratic means through members of the Organisation Team. Team members are simply those who undertake a body of work on behalf of the society as a whole and the team expands and contracts to meet changing circumstances.

 

Society members are encouraged to participate, if they wish to do so, at every level.There is a convention at Portmeirion, where the series was filmed, and other social events and location visits are organised from time-to-time.

 

Membership of the society is by annual subscription and brings regular mailings which include a quality professionally printed magazine each time plus other printed items. You can join online by credit card or by mail.
