This year’s AGM will be held on Zoom on Wednesday 18th May 2022. Further information and joining details will be circulated in due course.

The Arts Society is also delighted to announce that our 2023 AGM and Conference will be held in Bristol. The event will take place on Wednesday 24th May 2023 at St George’s Bristol. For further details please visit https://theartssociety.org/bristol2023

We look forward to next year where we can all come together again to celebrate the organisation's resilience, the dedication of our volunteers and to look ahead to the future. Bristol - with its artistic credentials and multi-faceted heritage is a wonderful city in which to celebrate arts and heritage.

Bristol has long  been a centre for arts and creativity. From Cary Grant to Banksy, from Thomas Lawrence to Damien Hirst, from Portishead to sculptor Nigel Hall, Bristol has produced and played home to many creatives who  have helped shape British art and culture. In recent years, Bristol’s history and heritage has been at the forefront of many important discussions around art, history and the stories we tell about them. For this reason and many more, we feel Bristol is the ideal city for The Arts Society to hold its 2023 AGM and Conference.

Want to see what the West Mercia Area has to offer?

Well look no further than the 50 Treasures of West Mercia Book. The twenty member Societies of the West Mercia Area have joined together to produce this collection of much loved artistic objects and places across the Area. Arts Society members were invited to send in their suggestions for inclusion in the guide, the ninth to be published in England and Wales by The Arts Society.

Produced mainly in the pandemic, this book is the result of the help and enthusiasm of West Mercia Area’s members. Why not plan to visit some of these next year when you attend the AGM and Conference in Bristol next year.

The book is illustrated with colour images throughout and includes up to date information to plan a visit – including area maps, access arrangements, websites, and contact details. It is available from The Arts Society and costs £7, including postage and packing. To order a copy please email Diana on denutting01@gmail.com.
