Welcome to The Arts Society Chester

Updated Special announcement : The Arts Society Chester arrangements during Covid-19

-----

Welcome to the Arts Society Chester!  We host monthly lectures on a wide range of topics relating to the Arts, normally meeting at Chester Zoo Lecture Theatre on the third Tuesday of the month from September to June.  

During the Covid-19 pandemic our Lecture programme will be online only, starting at 11:00am.  For copyright reasons it is only possible to view the lecture "live", so there is no afternoon session at present.  If we have your e-mail address, links will be sent to you before each lecture.  Please contact Jenny Rogers, the membership secretary, on taschestermembership@gmail.com for further information.

Our on-line Lectures for the first half of 2021 will be  

19 January - Susan Kay-Williams
Painting with a Needle: 18th Century Embroidery for Gentlemen and Botanists

16 February - Dr Diane Davis
The Magnificent Maya - Fact and Fantasy

16 March - Dr Anthony Buxton
Iconic Objects in Art - The Bird

The Architecture, Heritage and History of Britain's Canals

18 May - Marie-Anne Mancio
Caravaggio and His Models

15 June - John Stevens

We hope to return to our dual-lecture programme, at the Zoo Lecture Theatre, from September 2021.
