The Arts Society Wensum

 

Welcome to the Arts Society Wensum.

Our Society normally holds nine monthly lectures (September-November; January- June). We meet at the Assembly House in the centre of Norwich, which is easily accessible by bus.  There are also ample car parks nearby.  Coffee is available before the start of the lecture.

We also arrange Special Interest Days and day  visits to places of interest.  Each autumn we organise a 3-4 day visit to another UK city (Stratford-upon-Avon in 2021)

We also support young arts locally and are currently developing a programme of events for young carers, who have had such a difficult time during lockdown.

Currently we are not holding lectures or other events, but we will resume in September, either at the Assembly House or by zoom if restrictions are re-introduced by the Government.  We are circulating information to all our members via email each month.  If you are interested please contact our Membership Secretary (details given below) and we will add you to our mailing list and invite you to join in due course.
