The Arts Society West Cornwall

Our Society brings people together through a shared curiosity for the arts. Our events provide welcoming places to hear expert lecturers share their specialist knowledge about the arts. Our members contribute to and preserve our artistic heritage through volunteering and grants. Our work creates a better, healthier and more connected society.

Every year we hold a wide ranging and fascinating programme of lectures, visits, workshops and social events. We are not a society of artists or craftspeople, but of people who share a curiosity for the arts. Our members (who do include artists and craftspeople) are interested in all art-related disciplines including painting, sculpture, music, literature, ceramics, and architecture. We try and ensure that the programme has something of interest to everyone and with such a committed and enthusiastic membership there’s always something new and exciting going on!

Our lectures take place at the lecture theatre in the Zennor Building at Penwith College which has excellent raked seating and fine audio-visual equipment, so it’s easy to see and hear everything. The College also has ample free parking. We open our doors at 6:45pm with lectures starting at 7:30pm.

We provide refreshments before and after lectures so you can enjoy meeting with and making friends, and have a relaxing evening.

Please look through our Gallery of photographs from past events and check out our upcoming events. We welcome guests at our lectures & we’d love to see you (please see individual events for availability and pricing).
