Welcome to The Arts Society North Bucks

The Arts Society North Bucks was launched in 2009  (originally known as the North Buckinghamshire Decorative and Fine Arts Society.  We have about 220 members and now enjoy a lively and varied programme of monthly lectures.  In normal (non-Covid) times, we meet on the second Thursday of each month (except in July and August) at Lovat Hall in Newport Pagnell.  Coffee is served from 10.15am, chairman's notices are at 10.50am, and the lecture, lasting for about one hour, is at 11.00am. 

Members of the Society come from the many towns and villages in North Bucks, including the largest, Milton Keynes, Olney and Newport Pagnell.  We usually offer members the chance to go on two external visits a year; we also hold two Special Interest Days each year, when members can explore a topic in more depth.  Guests and potential new members are very welcome: contact Elaine, our Membership Secretary (see email below) if you are interested. For a modest annual subscription, you can attend as many lectures as you wish

UPDATE November 2020:  During the Covid-19 outbreak, we have offered successful lectures using Zoom  from September 2020 onwards. This will continue, we anticipate, until June 2021 with a Special Interest Day in April 2021 also using Zoom. We hope that in September 2021 we may be able to return to 'normal' operation!  The performance by the Rhubarb Theatre Company (see News), funded in part by our donation to FoLiO, has been postponed, possibly to a date in May 2021, to be confirmed.

Details will be posted in EVENTS below.
