Greater London Area

We are one of the areas of the UK Arts Society and comprise 25 Societies in the Greater London Area and Jersey. Our aims are to promote the appreciation and study of every aspect of the arts and to preserve our artistic heritage for the benefit of all.

The Societies each have their own programme of lectures, study days, visits, and volunteering opportunities. If you would like to contact a society with a view to becoming a member, just click on a name on the list here to find their website.

If you are unable to join a Society, we have ‘Supporters’; it means that you receive a magazine 3 times a year, and you can find out about those events which are open to non members, and about Societies in all parts of the country, to find out more visit the main website. 

An Area team exists to support the local societies and also offers area meetings, educational events and co-ordination of the Arts Volunteering, Heritage Volunteers and Trails of Discovery activities.

Other parts of the website have information on the activities of the London Area, which we are resuming as it becomes safe to do so - Study Days open to all; other activities such as heritage volunteeringchildrens' trails and arts volunteering, our donations and grant giving policy; and news on recent events.

Enjoy browsing our website, and we hope you will enjoy what the Arts Society of the Greater London Area has to offer.

The city’s picturesque beauty, unique topography and traditions of Carnival have earned it fulsome praise as ‘The Queen of the Adriatic’ or ‘The City of Masks’. As we will see in this study day, Venice can also be described in myriad ways as the City of Silk, Gold, Mosaics, Glass, Lapis Lazuli, Book-Binding, Musical Instruments or Gondolas.
