Special Events

In2018 The Arts Society celebrated its Golden Anniversary. The Greater London Area opened the year in January 2018 with events at the Goldsmith's Hall, St.Paul's Cathedral, the British Museum and  the National Gallery, showing the diversity of activities we have to offer. We also helped to sponsor "The Age of Jazz" a wonderfully successful exhibition at 2 Temple Place. The rest of the year was no less exciting....5 of our study days were held with the special theme of GOLD..ranging through Egypt, Pre- Raphaelites, and Spanish art.  On 22nd September a day of inspiring lectures was held at Bridewell Hall to celebrate "Our True Gold" in conjunction with all the other areas of The Arts Society throughout the country. And finally to celebrate this special year in our history the Greater London Area held a concert at King's Place celebrating music about London throughout the ages, and featuring a new work we commissioned from a student, Joe Howard, at the Royal Academy of Music.

Following on the successful event at Bridewell Hall we are holding another event there on Saturday 21st September 2019. Speakers booked include Nigel Bates, Jonathan Foyle and Malcolm Jones. The day is for members and non-members and we encourage Society members to bring along friends and relations who are not already members to give them a 'taste' of what The Arts Society offers.
