The Arts Society Greater London Area

We are now called The Arts Society, which better 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.

And next year will be the Golden Anniversary.

The Greater London Area will have special events to celebrate...go to the News page for a first taste of what we have to offer

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

You can do all this through the Arts Society.

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, we have Affiliate Members; 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  

London Area

We are one of the 19 areas of the UK Arts Society and comprise 26 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; other activities such as heritage volunteering, church recording, childrens' trails and young artsour donations and grant giving policy; and news on recent events.
