Welcome to The Arts Society Wessex Area, a great way to expand your knowledge of the arts.
The Wessex Area has 21 societies in the area from the coast of Dorset, covering part of Somerset, Bath, all of Wiltshire, and beyond the M4.
Arts Society Areas act as a conduit between the Societies themselves and the Headquarters in London. Each Area supports and promotes its local societies, and is able to offer advice and guidance throughout the year, and at the two Area Meetings held annually. It is important that Societies feel they are part of an area, and can gain from one another's experiences. The Area Meetings are an excellent forum for sharing information and meeting other Society members. The Wessex Area holds its own Study Days several times a year and these are open to all members in the Wessex Area.
The Area also encourages and promotes Heritage Volunteers, Church Recording, Young Arts activities and Church Trails.
