WELCOME TO THE ARTS SOCIETY CORINIUM
The Arts Society Corinium is a small, friendly society, welcoming new Members and visitors. 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.

WHAT WE DO
COMMUNITY ARTS AND CHARITABLE WORK
Started in 1973 Young Arts, now the Arts Society's Community Arts, provides exciting opportunities for children and young people to expand their horizons through their involvement in creative arts activities.
The Arts Society Corinium funds new initiatives to help young people of all ages and abilities to engage in and develop an interest in the arts.
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 talks, doors open at 6:45pm. Talks start at 7:30pm promptly. Refreshments are available until 7:15pm. Talks are free for members and we request for a contribution of £8 from visitors.
WHERE WE MEET
Our talks are held at the Cirencester Baptist Church on Chesterton Lane, Cirencester GL7 1YE opposite the Shell Garage.
We also organise visits to sites of cultural and historic interest for Members, often with exclusive access, or expert guides. Our first visit of 2023 will be at the end of March and other destinations are being organised for later this year.
