A letter from our Chairman



November, 2018



Dear Members and Visitors

Welcome to the Home Page of The Arts Society, Cambridge.  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, if you would like to join us, 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.  Our Term started with a hugely enriching and informative lecture about the Maya by Dr Diane Davies.  Such is our diversity that the next lecture will be about the magical art of Holywood from Garbo to Garland.  The Arts Society remit is broad and is reflected in our choices -  please look at the forthcoming lectures list to see what we are hearing about this year.  Our visits are very special too; we take advantage of the wonders of Cambridge and have some extraordinary options including this December, a winter evening reading of two ghost stories by M.R. James in the Provost's Lodge at King's College.  

We look forward to seeing you at our next lecture in Churchill College on 6 December.  Please don't forget we're starting a signing in system in December so before you get your coffee, please initial the sheet with your name on it.  If you have had difficulty parking at Churchill in the past, please take the time to look at to plan a journey using the bus.  From the Madingley Road P&R you can either walk through to Eddington Avenue and get a U bus or you can walk down to Madingley Road, opposite the British Antarctic Survey and get the C4 bus.  Both will take you to the bottom of Storey's Way.  

With best wishes for an enriching Autumn,

Sue Greenwood




An Additional Visit Opportunity

Would anyone be interested in an alternative visit for our cancelled trip in September? The Ely Cathedral is putting on "The Beautiful Stitch" exhibition in February 2019.

We are proposing a morning coach visit to Ely on Friday 15, February. If there was interest a group lunch could be arranged or there would be free time to find something delicious on the High Street. The price for the trip would be approximately £18.

If you would like your visits secretaries to organise this trip, please be in touch by email: or stop by our desk to speak with us at the next lecture. If we have sufficient numbers, we will insert this trip into our programme.
