Welcome to The Arts Society North Bucks

The Arts Society North Bucks was launched in 2009. We have about 220 members and enjoy a lively and varied programme of monthly lectures, together with two Special Interest Days and external visits.  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 an 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.  Guests and potential new members are very welcome: contact Elaine, our Membership Secretary (see email address below) if you are interested. For a modest annual subscription, you can attend as many lectures as you wish

STOP PRESS  6 January 2022:  During the Covid-19 outbreak, we have held successful lectures and Study Days using Zoom. We successfully held a live lecture in December 2021 but regretfully, with the current high case numbers of the Omicron variant of Covid19, we have decided that our January meeting will be on Zoom only. 
Members will be advised as soon as we feel we can safely return to live lectures at Lovat Hall, Newport Pagnell. You can now view our lecture programme up to June 2022 in EVENTS below. 

The planned performance by the Rhubarb Theatre Company (see News), funded in part by our donation to FoLiO, has now been rescheduled for 21 May 2022.
