Our 2020/2021 Programme

We’re delighted to introduce you to our 2020/2021 Programme of art lectures which this season, because of Covid 19, may sometimes be streamed using Zoom.  

This season offers our Society various challenges because of Covid 19. It is our intention to present our lectures in the Salon Varietés, if it is safe and proper to do so. If not then we will stream them using Zoom to all our Members, and Guests too, on payment of a small fee, so that no one misses out on the wonderful selection of lectures that have been chosen for you.

As a bonus, The Arts Society headquarters are offering FOUR lectures, once a month from September to December, FREE to ALL MEMBERS OF THE ARTS SOCIETY, and these will be broadcasted via You Tube, live and only available to watch at that time.

For more information  about these lectures and about Zoom please go to this page
