Welcome to The Arts Society Gravesend

The Arts Society Gravesend was formed 25 years ago as the Gravesend and District Decorative and Fine Arts Society. In 2017 we became The Arts Society Gravesend.  We have approximatley 200 members who come mainly from Gravesend and the surrounding villages.

Gravesend and its surrounding districts have many historic buildings and areas of cultural interest, which contribute greatly to the character and uniqueness of the area. Gravesham Borough Council has won many national awards for its regeneration and restoration programmes such as the town pier (the last remaining cast iron pier in the world) the Berkley Crescent colonnades and the Heritage Quarter.

St Georges Church in the centre of Gravesend is the place where Princess Pocahontas is buried. Gravesend also has a rich and varied architectural heritage. Many well known personalities have links with the area including Daniel Defoe, Dick Whittington and Charles Dickens. The many villages around Gravesend all have areas of interest, old buildings and houses, beautiful countryside, nature conservation areas and much more.

We meet in the Masonic Hall, Wrotham Road, Gravesend. DA11 OPA on the second Tuesday in the month except in July when we meet on the first Tuesday in the month. There are NO meetings in August or December.

Lectures begin at 11 a.m. Coffee and tea are available from 10.15a.m. We ask everyone to be seated at 10.50 for notices so we can ensure that lectures start on time. The annual membership fee for 2017 - 2018 is £47.50.

Visitors may attend a maximum of 2 meetings a year, plus the Day of Special Interest, Annual lunch & any visits or tours. The charge for a single meeting for visitors is £7.00. It is important that any visitors are booked in advance with our membership secretary e-mail: membership@theartssocietygravesend.org.uk as we are often close to the maximum the hall can seat to met fire and safety requirements.
