Welcome to The Arts Society Scarborough - which covers coast and country

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE HAD TO CANCEL THE MONTHLY LECTURES FOR APRIL, MAY AND JUNE DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS AND HOPE TO RESUME AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER

 

 

The Arts Society Scarborough is just one branch of a national organisation,  The Arts Society. The society was formed to bring together people interested in the arts, who wished to see and hear inspiring and beautifully illustrated lectures from experts, to visit museums, galleries, historic houses and gardens, and to increase and broaden their knowledge of art in all respects, whilst having fun, learning new skills and making new friends.

We meet on the third Wednesday of each month ( except for July, August and December) at 11am at The Downe Arms country house hotel in Wykeham, some 7 miles west of Scarborough on the A170 for lectures on a wide range of artistic subjects from experienced and knowledgeable lecturers.

During the warmer months of the year, we organise trips and outings to places  of artistic and cultural interest. Over the last two years our two and three day tours have included visits to Lincoln Cathedral,the Coalport China Museum, Littlethorpe Manor, Wentworth Woodhouse, Highgrove Garden , Waddesden Manor ,Highclere Castle and The Royal Derby Museum .  This year we plan to visit Shibden Hall near Halifax(of 'Gentleman Jack' fame )  on a day trip and are organising a  longer tour to London to visit Kew Gardens, Petersham House and gardens, Ham House house and gardens ( we will also visit Hardwick Hall on our way down south ).

Where possible, we aim to support arts in the wider community. Our Young Arts projects are supporting Scarborough Hospital with a variety of art materials for the Children’s Ward and we also support The Street’s Prevention Service in their work with young people in our area.
