Welcome to The Arts Society North Bucks

The Arts Society North Bucks was launched in 2009  (originally the North Buckinghamshire Decorative and Fine Arts Society.  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

UPDATE July 2021:  During the Covid-19 outbreak, we have offered successful lectures and a Study Day using Zoom  from September 2020 onwards. Our forthcomiing lectures, listed below in EVENTS, are initially planned also to be on Zoom. However, if we are abe to offer hybrid events (simultaneously live in Lovat Hall and streamed online), members will be able to choose how they receive them. The performance by the Rhubarb Theatre Company (see News), funded in part by our donation to FoLiO, has been postponed, to a date to be confirmed.
