We are a friendly society with over 180 members that meets in Grayshott Village Hall on the first Thursday of the month at 2:00pm to hear talks on many aspects of the arts given by world-class lecturers. The lectures cover a wide spectrum of subjects including art, architecture, music, sculpture, design, crafts and the performing arts.

Twice a year we run more in depth days on subjects of special interest. We also run regular visits to exhibitions, houses, gardens and other places of interest and in the winter arrange on-line visits to places around the world that we can view from home. Through voluntary work or donations, we also support the arts in local schools and elsewhere and run projects to preserve and promote our local heritage. For more about us click here.

Do come and join us. You’ll find lots of like-minded people and a warm welcome. Click here for membership details or just come along to a lecture as a visitor to sample what we offer.
