The Arts Society Arun

Welcome to the Arts Society Arun

The Arts Society Arun has regular monthly meetings with lectures from highly knowledgeable and entertaining speakers, and a special all-day event where we can explore a topic in more depth with an expert in the subject.  Throughout the year we arrange a number of one-day visits to places of interest, and a longer residential stay for those interested in going further afield.


Access to the Arts during the Coronavirus Crisis

The Woodlands Centre

Except for the months of August and December the Arts Society Arun presents the lectures at meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at the Woodlands Centre * (next to the recreation ground).  Meetings begin promptly at 10:15am preceded by doors opening at 9:45am with refreshments until 10:05am.  Members’ guests are welcome on payment of £6 – please book in with the Membership Secretary on the door.

* PLEASE NOTE: To comply with social distancing rules during the Covid 19 pandemic our lectures are being held online via the Zoom platform. It is anticipated that the Society will restart lectures at The Woodlands Centre again on 21 September 2021.

Additionally a number of our members engage in voluntary work supporting Arts Volunteering, Heritage Projects around Sussex and Church Recording.

The Arts Society Arun is a local branch of the national Arts Society whose aims are the promotion and appreciation of all forms of art.  The Arts Society Arun is also affiliated regionally to The Arts Society Sussex Area.
