We are a small friendly society of about 150 members. Our year runs from September to June with meetings held on the third Tuesday in those months (excluding December).

Lectures start promptly at 11a.m. We combine with our sister society The Arts Society South Suffolk for Visits and Special Interest Events, each society organising three visits and three events annually. These activities are individually priced as low as possible. Visitors are very welcome, subject to space, and pay the same price as members. For full details, please see the  Visits  and  Special Interest  pages.

Apart from the educational aspects of the society, we also encourage and support young people in the arts. Through the gift aid scheme, we can get refunds of tax on members' subscriptions which are used to finance these activities. Full details are available on the Volunteering - Young Arts  page of this website. There are over 300 societies affiliated to The Arts Society, mainly in the UK but also in Europe and Australia.
