Welcome to The Arts Society Hereford

Our aim is to entertain and educate through first class lecturers, visits and opportunities to volunteer. Our voluntary work includes church recording; church trails and safeguarding our heritage through repairing and restoration projects.

Illustrated expert lectures cover a wide variety of topics including architecture, art and design, ceramics, glass, painting, music, furniture, sculpture, jewellery and much more, covering prehistory to modern times.

Visits may include country houses, exhibitions, gardens and other places of interest. We also organise "pop-up" visits in addition to those in the programme. These will be at shorter notice but will be well publicised at lectures, on the website and via email. Please look out for them!
