IMG_1790.jpegWelcome to our website which not only contains information about our Society but also about arts and cultural activities in North Bedfordshire and beyond

The Arts Society (of which we are one of nearly 400 societies) is an extraordinary organisation, involving tens of thousands of  members  - both in the UK and internationally - who regularly take part in high quality arts events supported by a large group of expert lecturers and guides.

We meet for lectures at the  Addison Centre in Kempston  at the times shown in the adjoining panel. We also organise study visits, special interest events and provide arts projects for young people. Let us know how we can develop this site to meet your interests, and if you're not a member come and join us.
