A letter from our Chairman



September, 2018



Dear Members and Visitors

Our 2017-18 year is now ended and your committee is already looking forward to the 2018-19 Programme. The new programme cards have been posted and with them you will have found your Arts Society membership cards which give some useful benefits (have a look at and

We have also invited a number of new members to join us this October and we look forward to seeing you next month.  Our Society is vibrant and friendly and if you are looking at this page out of curiosity, do look at other pages on our website and learn more about what we do, who we are and what our purpose is and then, please contact our Membership Secretary and put your name on our waiting list.

Our Programme for 2018-19 is very exciting and varied; we hope everyone will find something to intrigue, delight, inform and occasionally challenge.  

We have had an appeal for help from The Arts Society HQ.  If you are a member of the National Trust you can help us.  Here is the information you need to help maintain the voice of The Arts Society at the heart of the National Trust - a place it should rightly hold. Here is a quotation from the appeal from Florian Schweizer:

The Arts Society is currently one of the 24 Appointing Bodies entitled to appoint a member of the National Trust Council, but this figure is being reduced to 18. The general membership of the National Trust is due to vote this autumn on which organisations should be Appointing Bodies for the next six years. To maintain our position, it is therefore very important to ensure that as many Arts Society members as possible who are also members of the National Trust vote in this year’s National Trust elections. This is therefore a plea to you to make sure that you vote. There will be 33 organisations on the ballot paper, and whilst you should vote for any organisations that you specifically want to see represented, it is not necessary to use all your votes – voting for Charity X just to use up your votes could mean that Charity X got elected rather than The Arts Society.

Very best wishes for what remains of the summer and we look forward to seeing you in Churchill College on 11 October for our first lecture.

Sue Greenwood
