A warm welcome to you. We are a friendly society with diverse interests in the arts, both visual and decorative.

We meet in The Assembly Room, The Council House, North Street Chichester on the second Tuesday morning of the month from October to June.

Our website will tell you about our programme of lectures, our visits to places of artistic and historic interest and our ‘Study Days’ where we go into depth about particular subjects.

Dear Members

I thought I’d post a few lines to reassure you that we are still working away behind the scenes. All lecturers have been contacted and they are going to be rebooked in the future – so we don’t miss out and neither do they! Guilford Street, London are setting up a new site as part of their website, called The Arts Connected. It will be a simple site on which they host blogs and forums on which all members can exchange views, ideas, tips and thoughts during this time of social isolation. They also hope to add online lectures by our Accredited Lecturers. So, watch this space and I hope you will enjoy this experience!

As for me I have never had a cleaner house or a neater garden! Please keep well and happy.
