The Arts Society – New Forest

Welcome to the Arts Society New Forest.  As a society we are interested in furthering our knowledge of the fine arts.  We meet on a regular basis to enjoy lectures on a range of topics, delivered by renowned speakers.  Our interests are extended further when we study subjects in greater depth and go out on day visits and breaks away, both in Britain and abroad.

An important aspect of our society is our aim to offer the opportunity, within an artistic framework, to young people from the local community to explore and extend their personal knowledge.  Conservation of heritage is important to us too. A group of our members regularly meet to record for posterity, the fabric and artifacts of local places of worship.

Our society is a local branch of the Arts Society , an international charitable organization.


Members please note:

Our AGM will take place before our next meeting – April 9th. It will begin promptly at 10.30 in order that the lecture is not delayed.

The lecture ‘As Good as Gold ‘ has been carefully chosen to fit in with our  celebration at this meeting of  the 50 years  of the Society – its Golden Anniversary. Before the lecture we will cut our celebratory cake.

After the lecture all members are invited to join us for a slice of cake and a glass of golden  bubbles ( or non alcoholic alternative)

Our Young Arts celebratory banner may also be displayed.
