We regret that owing to the national situation with the coronavirus, we are cancelling the May & June lectures & the trip to Champs Hill. The July trip to Eltham Palce will be rescheduled when happier times come again. Pease check on this website for further updates. 

Wishing you all the best in this difficult situation. Keep Well ! 

“The Society Lectures are an absolute joy. The hour just whizzes by.”

There is only one thing more stimulating than enjoyment of the arts and that is enjoying the arts with like-minded people. Our dynamic programme of lectures and visits, social events and study days are made even more interesting by the presence of people who share the same interests as you. The Arts Society is an organisation of over 90,000 members recognised as a significant force within the art world. What brings us together is an interest in the arts and conservation and what keeps us coming back to the society is the high standard of our activities. The Arts Society  is for people of all ages and new members are always welcome – it is a great way to make new friends. The lecturers are distinguished people with expertise in their chosen topics. Some work at universities, some write books about the arts, some guide tours in national art galleries, some lead tours abroad or lecture on cruises, some are radio and television contributors and some deal in art. Some are many of these things! To ensure their availability, we have to book up to two years in advance.
