As the Government has announced additional steps to delay the spread of Coronavirus, it is our assessment that the well-being and safety of our Members, Volunteers and Lecturers, many of whom fall within the high-risk category, is likely to benefit from The Arts Society taking active measures to reduce non-essential Arts Society activity before the pandemic reaches its peak in the UK and Europe.  
We therefore regret to inform you that all Arts Society events and meetings for the period 16 March to July will be cancelled. 

All those who have purchased tickets to any of our study days in this period are advised not to travel to attend these meetings. The Study course organisers will contact everyone who has purchased a ticket and organise a refund; this may take a few weeks to effect so please be patient with us. We hope to re-arrange some or all of these interesting days later in the year, so do keep an eye on our 'Courses and Events' page

We will continue to review the situation during the next few weeks. Meanwhile we wish you and yours remain safe during this difficult time.

Further advice for Societies on whether or not to hold meetings and the cancellation policy can be found on the Bulletin issued to all committee members on Friday 13th March  

Also go to the Arts Society Connected for free lectures and lots of other items to interest you during these difficult days. 

Enjoy and stay safe!
