THE ARTS SOCIETY BOURNEMOUTH & EAST DORSET

The annual Membership fee to join us (see 'Joining Us') covers the cost of nine lectures a year in a modern comfortable Church Hall.  Membership also gives the opportunity to join us on day visits and days of special interest, and friendly lunches to meet with or make new friends.

Lectures Held at 2.30pm on the second Tuesday in the months October to June and followed by tea and biscuits.

Visits These are full day visits by luxury coach (two pick up points) to places of particular artistic merit within a reasonable distance of Bournemouth i.e cathedrals, stately homes, museums, art galleries etc. There are usually seven visits a year from October to March. Expert guides bring these places to life for us. The cost of these is extra to the annual Membership fee.

Days of Special Interest (DSI) Usually two per year are held in November & February and they comprise illustrated lectures divided by lunch. These days are held at The Haven Hotel, Sandbanks BH13 7QL. The cost of these is extra to the annual Membership fee.  

Other Events We hold a New Members Coffee Morning in October. This provides an opportunity for new members to meet some of the Committee.  A Christmas Lunch is held in November or December at a local Hotel and a Summer Lunch in either May or June.  These are purely social occasions enabling members to mix and meet new friends.
