Welcome

Our New Season’s Lectures

We are pleased to announce our lectures for the coming season (October 2019 to July 2020). You will find a wonderful mix of topics, all delivered by well recognised and respected lecturers, and we look forward to welcoming you, along with our new members, on the first day of the new season, 1st October 2019. Our first lecture is by Louise Schofield and she tells of the Queen of Sheba’s epic journey to the court of King Soloman and is entitled ‘Temples, Tombs and Treasures: In Search of the Queen of Sheba’.

We are currently planning the rest of our programme for the season and we have an exciting Special Interest Day with Martin Ellis on 25th February 2020 entitled ‘Fire and Form: 7000 Years of Ceramic Art’. There is also a day visit on 30th October, 2019: ‘Windsor Castle: A Castle Restored’.  A programme of Garden Visits and Away Visits is in the planning and more details will follow soon.

In the meantime, we wish you all a very happy summer and see you in October.

Welcome from our Chairperson

THE ARTS SOCIETY KINGTON LANGLEY is an affiliated member of The Arts Society, a leading education charity with a global network of 385 societies bringing people together through a shared interest in the arts.

We meet monthly at 11.00am on the 1st Tuesday of the month (except August and September) to hear excellent lecturers share their specialist knowledge about the arts.

In addition, we offer study days, visits to places of interest, visits to gardens of interest and an annual ‘away visit’ to a major town or city in either UK or Europe.

We run a Young Arts Programme, fundraising and giving grants to support arts related projects for the students and specialist training for staff in our local schools.

We also offer volunteering opportunities to include heritage causes and children’s trails of discovery.

Please explore our website to find out more about us and how you can join the society.
