Welcome to the Arts Society Chester! We host monthly lectures on a wide range of topics relating to the Arts, normally meeting on the third Tuesday of the month from September to June.
Programme September 2021 – June 2022
The Committee is looking forward to presenting the new lecture season, with a wide range of interesting topics, which will be delivered by lecturers who have been carefully selected to make travel and accommodation as easy as possible, whilst Covid-19 safety is still a consideration. During September to December 2021, all lectures will be delivered at 11am on Zoom, however the October lecture will also be delivered live at the Lecture Theatre, Chester Zoo at 11am and 2pm, as a trial live event. We warmly welcome anyone who feels comfortable to attend to the October trial lecture and would ask you to attend at the time appropriate to your membership.
As before, links will be sent to everyone on email to enable attendance at the Zoom lectures.
From January to June 2022 we will be returning to live lectures at the Lecture Theatre, Chester Zoo. Members will choose to have either morning or afternoon Membership and will attend the session selected.
Due to the limited space available we do not envisage serving any refreshments at the Lecture Theatre. The Bembe Coffee Shop at the entrance to the Zoo sells light refreshments.
We will continue to abide by any National or Local restrictions due to Covid-19 and will revert to Zoom lectures, should this prove necessary. Any updates and/or changes to the Programme will be shown on this website and communicated via MailChimp emails, so we recommend that you supply an email address to the Membership Secretary and add the taschestermembership[at]gmail.com address to your contacts. Please use this email address to contact Jenny Rogers, if you have any queries about attending lectures.
