Join the Society

The Arts Society is made up of over 375 local Societies across the UK. Each individual Society runs a programme of excellent events and activities relating to the decorative and fine arts.

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.

As a member of an Arts Society, you can take pride in being part of an organisation that has done more than any other to champion the decorative and fine arts in the United Kingdom and abroad for over forty years.
