The Arts Society Taunton is one of over 300 societies affiliated to the charity The Arts Society.

We are a very friendly group and would be delighted to welcome you if you are interested in ‘The Arts’ in their broadest form. We enjoy meeting once a month for an illustrated lecture, by first class speakers, each a national or international expert in his or her field who cover a huge range of Arts topics. We arrange trips to places of historical, architectural or artistic interest both at home and abroad.

Our aim is to inform and interest people through the appreciation and study of decorative and fine arts by an extensive lecture and visits programme.

Potential members and visitors are welcome to attend up to 3 lectures as visitors in any membership year for which a charge of £7 per lecture will be made.

In light of the current Coronavirus situation we have decided to cancel lectures for April May and June and the 26th March Discovery Day

Any further changes to our planned programme will be updated as necessary. 

Please keep an eye on this website for further information.
