Welcome to The Arts Society Chester

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.  

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 final two on-line Lectures for the first half of 2021 will be: 

18 May - Marie-Anne Mancio
Caravaggio and His Models

15 June - John Stevens
The Art of Rabindranath Tagore (1861 - 1941)

Programme September 2021 – June 2022

The Committee has been considering for some time how to continue the lecture programme for the 2021 – 2022 season and a sub-Committee has been set up to investigate all the possible permutations of how and where these lectures will be delivered.  

The sub-Committee will consult on its proposals with the Membership at the end of August and collect feedback.   At present, however, it seems most likely that the four lectures from September to December will continue to be via Zoom and the lecturers have been contracted on this basis. 

The main aim is to follow all the advice and guidance of the Government and the central office of The Arts Society, to ensure that the Programme offered to Members for the next year will be in a comfortable, enjoyable and safe environment, with the usual high standards of content, professional delivery and wide range of interesting topics.
