CORINIUM

WELCOME

The Arts Society Corinium is a friendly society, welcoming new members and visitors with an interest in decorative and fine arts.  We are part of The Arts Society (formerly known as the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts - NADFAS), with a global network of 380 local societies.

Bringing people together through this shared interest in the arts, we enjoy a programme of ten high standard, illustrated Talks each year.  Topics are diverse and include sculpture, textiles, paintings, ceramics, garden design, silver, music, literature and more.  All our speakers are specialists in their field and each one is chosen by the Arts Society to deliver a talk that informs, educates and entertains.

In addition to this programme of TALKS we organise:


We also support a wide range of:

Members receive a free copy of the national magazine, published quarterly by the Arts Society which provides articles on arts subjects and activities throughout the country.

Our Talks are held at the Cirencester Baptist Church on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm.  The doors open at 6:45pm, allowing members and visitors to enjoy a cup of tea/coffee prior to the talk, as part of their subscription.
