Welcome to The Arts Society Chester

Updated Special Announcement. Tuesday 21 April 2020 [from Bruce Lane]

We hope you are keeping well and safe in these unusual times.

The Committee continues to meet monthly via Zoom and we would like to update you on The Arts Society Chester activities:

As previously advised, the lectures to be held in April, May and June 2020 have been cancelled.

Lecturers for the 2020-2021 programme have been confirmed and we are hopeful that we will be able to resume our monthly meetings in September.  We will send you details as soon as the Government provides information on the lifting of restrictions.

A date for the postponed AGM will be sent once the restrictions are lifted.

Membership Renewal letters will be posted to all members, this is likely to be in July.   Fees will not be due until the end of September.  The committee are aware that four lectures in the 2019-2020 programme have been lost and hope to be able to reflect this in the 2020-2021 membership fee.


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

We are a dual-lecture Society, our morning lecture at 11:00 am being repeated at 2:00 pm.  In addition to this programme we run Special Interest Days, Visits and other events several times a year, which you can read about on this website.  Visitors are welcome by prior arrangement with the Membership Secretary.

The 2019-20 Committee Members' details are on your Programme Card; or to contact the Membership Secretary, please address e-mail to jrogerscdfas[at]gmail.com but replacing "[at]" by "@" to reduce Spam.  

The North West Area of The Arts Society has a new website, which you can visit at https://northwestarea.theartssociety.org (this link will take you away from the Chester site).
