Come and join us! We enjoy art in all its facets and we interpret ‘Decorative and Fine Arts’ quite broadly – just see our programme. You need no prior knowledge of the arts, or any particular artistic skill to join us, just an interest in the arts and a desire to know more.
We have two lecture sessions: an afternoon session when the lecture starts at 2.30pm and an evening session when the lecture begins at 8pm. Lectures are on the last Wednesday in the month (apart from June, July and December). When they join, new members decide whether they plan to attend the afternoon or evening sessions. This is for logistics purposes because there is limited seating in the lecture hall. Occasional changes of session are permitted.
The Society is well established in the community. It is an excellent place to meet new people as well as renew old acquaintances. Our approach is relaxed, informal, inclusive and friendly and we welcome new members. There is no waiting list at the moment.
The membership fee is £37 per annum per person payable by the 30th June. There is no charge for lectures but visits, extras, study days and tours are charged separately. Guests are welcome to attend up to 3 lectures per year for an entrance fee of £5 per lecture provided there is space.
Come along and see what we do. We will be delighted to welcome you. Please contact us first to ensure there is room. To find out more, to attend a lecture or event, or to join please contact the Membership Secretary or the Chairman by sending a message through the Contact Us page.
