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.
