Update – due to the current Covid-19 Epidemic, the inaugural meeting of the new Arts Society Coventry will no longer take place on 24th March. We will advise you of the new arrangements when they are known. More information is available on the Arts Society website. 

The Arts Society is an educational charity founded in 1965 to promote interest in and access to the arts. It has over 380 branches worldwide providing opportunities for the 90,000+ members to hear expert lecturers share their specialist knowledge in the Arts.

As Coventry 2021 approaches it seemed shocking that there wasn’t a Coventry Arts Society. So a group of local enthusiasts have founded one and organised an exciting programme of meetings.  These will take place on the fourth Tuesday of every month in the evening at The Herbert Art Gallery and Museum.

The inaugural lecture on 24 March 2020 will be ‘Selfies, self-expression and the Victorian carte de visite’ a new lecture from popular accredited lecturer and BBC Antiques Roadshow expert, Mark Hill.

Drinks will be served from 6.30pm and the lecture will start at 7.00pm.

Details of the excellent programme of lectures for the remainder of 2020 are as follows:

28 April – Titian, the first modern artist

26 May – The Art of Melancholy

23 June – The Punch and Judy Show

22 September – Medieval Buildings in Coventry

27 October – The Creative Courtesan

24 November – Raphael: A Master in the Making
