Hello and Welcome

Our society brings people together through a shared curiosity for the arts and our artistic heritage.

By focussing on the arts we seek to provide our members with opportunities to discover and learn from the expression and application of human creative skill and imagination.

We do this by offering a varied programme of events and meetings throughout the year.

After our launch year, 2018, there will also be opportunities to become involved in projects related to heritage conservation, to volunteer at heritage sites and to support a local young arts programme to bring creativity and arts education to children and young people.

It is also a great way to meet new friends and have fun.

We find our pre lecture drinks helps with this.
