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 enjoy a lively and varied programme of monthly lectures.  Members of the Society come from the many towns and villages in North Bucks, including the largest, Milton Keynes, Olney and Newport Pagnell.  As well as the lectures, we 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. 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.  Guests and potential new members are very welcome: come along to our next lecture ​and speak to Elaine, our Membership Secretary if you'd like to join (you can find an Application form under Attachments below); learn something interesting, make new friends and get involved!  For a modest annual subscription (£45 per year) you can attend as many lectures as you wish.  See full details below under EVENTS. 

STOP PRESS: In view of the Covid19 outbreak, we have taken the decision to cancel our lectures in April, May and June 2020, and also the Special Interest Day in April, to ensure the safety of our members. We hope to restart our meetings in September.
In addition, the performance by the Rhubarb Theatre Company on 16 May (see News), funded in part by our donation to FoLiO, has been postponed, to a date to be confirmed.
