Welcome to The Arts Society North Bucks

The North Buckinghamshire Decorative and Fine Arts Society was launched in 2009 and has now rebranded, in line with the national society, as The Arts Society North Bucks

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. Members can also browse and buy from a local bookseller, who brings a selection of his stock to every meeting. 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).

If you are interested in volunteering to help with the charitable aspects of the Arts Society's work, we have an active group of Church Recorders, and have also carried out two successful Young Arts projects in Milton Keynes Hospital and at Willen School. Come along, learn something interesting, make some new friends and get involved!  For a modest annual subscription (£45 per year) you can attend as many lectures as you wish.  For full details of the lectures, visits and Special Interest Days this year, see EVENTS below.
