WELCOME TO THE ARTS SOCIETY
The Arts Society Corinium is a small, friendly society, welcoming new Members. We do not have a waiting list for membership.
We enjoy talks and visits to learn about the Arts from accredited experts and we fund creative, educational activities in the Arts.
We are part of The Arts Society with a global network of over 380 local Societies, which bring people together through a shared curiosity for the arts.
Please visit our Facebook page and 'Like' and 'Follow Us' for the latest updates on our activities.
WHAT WE DO
We enjoy a programme of outstanding illustrated talks every month, except in August and December. Topics are diverse and include sculpture, textiles, painting, ceramics, garden design, silver, literature, music, etc. All our speakers are experts in their field and each one delivers inspiring insight into their particular topic.
For our live talks doors open at 7pm. Talks start at 7:30pm promptly. Refreshments are available. Talks are free for members and we request a £7 contribution from visitors.
We also organise visits to sites of cultural and historic interest for Members, often with exclusive access, or expert guides. Members recently enjoyed a visit to Coventry in November and are planning more visits for 2022.
We also have some videos of interviews on our YouTube channel with some of our speakers, available free for members and non-members to watch at any time.
Started in 1973, Young Arts provides exciting opportunities for children and young people to expand their horizons through their involvement in creative arts activities, supported by The Arts Society.
The Arts Society Corinium funds new initiatives to help young people develop an interest in the arts. We hold a monthly raffle to raise extra funds for Young Arts projects.
