The Arts Society to host over 400 events accross the UK to bring communities together
This Autumn over 100,000 people from across the country will attend over 400 arts events & lectures hosted by The Arts Society celebrating art, culture, education and an end to lockdown.

LONDON.- With over 100,000 people due to take part, this will be the first time many of The Arts Society’s members will attend their first face to face event since March 2020. September 2021 marks an important milestone into the reopening of the arts with art history lectures re-starting, as well as coffee meetings, cultural visits, volunteering and arts discussion groups taking place locally, in person and online, across the country.

More than 400 separate events will be taking place across the country from Cornwall to Cheshire and from London to Lancashire. Artists and topics covered by some of the planned lectures include: Banksy, Grayson Perry, The Bayeux Tapestry, Caravaggio, Manet, Holbein as well as Histories of Canals, Wallpaper and Diamonds, to name just a few.

While heritage visits include Eltham House, Norwich Castle, Syon House, a virtual visit to Venice and some events include cream teas and walking tours in Oxford.

The Arts Society provides a welcoming space for art lovers to come together – locally, nationally and globally, in person and online – with the opportunity to hear expert lecturers share their specialist knowledge about the arts. Some of the more unusual lecture topics include parks, fans and artists working within the criminal justice system as well as topics on interior design, jewellery, music and naval history.

With a programme full of events, The Arts Society is inviting non-members to attend events this autumn and also encouraging membership of what is the country’s leading arts education charity, that encourages its members to expand their minds, celebrate the arts and make new friends. The Arts Society is a vital opportunity for those who are isolated or who live alone to connect with likeminded people and make new friends through a shared passion for the arts.
