The Arts Society Shrewsbury, formed in 1982, is a member society of The Arts Society, one of some 360 member societies in the UK, mainland Europe, New Zealand and Australia. We are also part of The Arts Society West Midlands Area.
Our Arts Society Shrewsbury members, currently around 250 in number, come from all over Shropshire and meet for lectures in the afternoon on the third Wednesday of each month, except July and August, at the Lord Hill Hotel, Shrewsbury. In addition we hold at least one Day of Special Interest per year and offer members a varied programme of visits to galleries, museums and historic buildings within a day’s travelling of Shrewsbury and, more recently, overseas.
We are actively engaged in supporting local Young Arts projects and our Church Recording group has recently embarked on its third survey. Our Heritage Volunteers continue to work with the staff at Shrewsbury Archives on other projects.
Our aims are to offer you an opportunity to enrich your knowledge and interest in all aspects of the arts and to meet people of like mind in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere, and to foster active participation in the preservation of our cultural heritage.
We welcome new members. If you would like to join The Arts Society Shrewsbury, please contact us or just come along to one of our meetings. We look forward to seeing you.
