Welcome to The Arts Society North Bucks

The Arts Society North Bucks was launched in 2009. Currently we have 210 members and enjoy a lively programme of monthly lectures on a wide variety of arts-related topics, together with two Special Interest Days and external visits each year. Our most recent visit being to William Morris' house, Kelmscott Manor in June 2022. During Covid restrictions we have been using Zoom  lectures; but since March 2022, members have been enjoying our return to live lectures in Lovat Hall, Newport Pagnell, our usual lecture venue. We meet on the second Thursday of each month (except in July and August); coffee is served from 10.15-10:50a.m.,  and the lecture is at 11.00a.m., lasting for about an hour.

Members of the Society come from the many towns and villages in North Bucks, including the largest, Milton Keynes (now of course a city!), Olney and Newport Pagnell.  Guests and potential new members are very welcome: contact Yve, 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.

The much-delayed performance by the Rhubarb Theatre Company, to schoolchildren in Olney, which waspart-funded by the Society, has at last taken place on 21 May 2022. See News report below.
