Come and Join Us

Our friendly Society has a maximum membership of 200 and we warmly welcome new members.  At present, we have not quite reached our maximum numbers and have no waiting list. We are very happy for you to come as a visitor but limit this to twice a year. The cost is £6 per lecture.

Full Members

Our current annual membership charge is £45. This includes ten lectures per year and the beautiful quarterly Arts Society magazine, which is full of articles, dates of exhibitions and regular features such as study days, projects, travel and Arts Society news.

Membership runs from the 1st November to the 31st October in the following year. We send out renewal forms in early September together with details of the lectures for the new year. The forms must be returned no later than the date of our October meeting.

Once the Membership Secretary receives the renewal form, together with your cheque, we will send out the programme card and The Arts Society membership card.

Although our full membership costs £45 per annum, there is a sliding scale if you join us after February.  You can send the completed form, together with your cheque, to the Membership Secretary or bring it to your first meeting.  We will give or send you your membership card when we have received the completed form and your subscription.

We generally hold one or two coffee mornings a year for new members to meet up with each other and to meet our committee members.
