Explore the Arts!
Be informed and entertained in a friendly atmosphere through a wide-ranging programme of illustrated lectures. Our Lectures are given by eminent speakers who are expert, engaging communicators, in their chosen field. All are accredited by The Arts Society.
We are a like-minded friendly group of people with a common interest in the arts in all its forms. Our programme is diverse in its composition and is designed to challenge thinking, increase both knowledge and understanding, whilst developing a fuller appreciation of the arts. 
We also run two Study Days annually, led by an expert in their field, which covers a particular subject of the arts in more depth.
There are several opportunities during the year to participate with other members on Visits. These are usually to art galleries, museums, and places of special historic, architectural, cultural, or topical interest at home & abroad. Many of these are not generally open to the public.
Recent overseas visits have included Lisbon, Madrid, Dresden, and St Petersburg. Next year a visit to Northern Italy is planned for May 2019. Further details on the Visits page.
Our involvement is also extensive in activities such as Church Trails, Church Recording, and Heritage Volunteers & Young Arts. Further details can be found on the Volunteering page.
