We are now called The Arts Society, a name and brand that more clearly represents who we are and what we do. It communicates the broad nature of the lecture topics which now incorporate all the arts, and makes a strong statement about our role in the community and wider society. The monogram, with interlocking A and S, communicates a value at the heart of the organisation connecting people to the arts and to each other.

Are you interested in learning about all the arts?
           Or in helping to conserve our heritage? 
                         Or in making new friends who also enjoy lectures, visiting galleries or days out?       

Then The Arts Society may be for you.

You may already be a member and want to know more - this website is for you too.

About The Arts Society  ----

We promote and help to preserve the arts through lectures, events, study days, visits and tours, at National, Area and Society level.

We undertake voluntary activities helping to maintain historic buildings, recording churches and their contents, and developing the arts for the young.

If you are unable to join a Society, do think of becoming an Affiliate Member; it means that you receive a magazine 4 times a year, and you can find out about events at a National level which are open to non members, and about Societies in all parts of the country.

You can visit the website on www.theartssociety.org  
 

London Area

We are one of the 19 areas of the UK Arts Society and comprise 25 Societies all of whom have wide ranging programmes of lectures, study courses, visits, and opportunities to volunteer further. If you would like to attend a Society meeting with a view to becoming a member, information on the location and meeting arrangements is on this website.

Other parts of the website have information on the activities of the London Area - Area courses; volunteering opportunities; our donations and grant giving policy; and news on recent events.

Enjoy browsing our website, and we hope you will enjoy what the Arts Society, and the London area in particular, has to offer.
