Welcome to The Arts Society Welwyn Garden

The Arts Society Welwyn Garden welcomes visitors to their monthly meetings. We are a friendly, sociable Society, meeting usually on the third Thursday of the month. We hope to return to our venue, Campus West on September 15th.

We offer an excellent range of lectures, and when restrictions are lifted outings, Days of Special Interest and holidays.

Come and join us and make friends while finding out much, much more about Art, History, Sculpture, the list is virtually endless.

While we cannot meet in person we have Zoom lectures and our popular Arts Discussion mornings to enjoy.

The Arts Society Welwyn Garden started life in 1979 as Welwyn Garden Decorative & Fine Arts Society under the auspices of NADFAS, and the first meeting was held the following year in March 1980. Originally its purpose was to promote and cultivate an interest in fine arts. In recent years the brief has widened considerably to include the promotion and appreciation, not only of fine arts but the artistic heritage of all cultures, and we regularly hold lectures on a diverse and truly cosmopolitan list of contents, including music and architecture.
We organise regular day trips by coach to interesting locations and impromptu "Pop-Up visits".   These have recently included the Royal Opera House and Shakespeare’s Globe.  Periodically we organise cultural holidays both at home and abroad.
We have a varied programme of fascinating, illustrated lectures given by entertaining and knowledgeable professional speakers.
Lectures are held at Campus West,  at 10:30am.
Visitors are very welcome and may pay admission on the door.
