Established nearly 40 years ago and enjoying The Arts in all its forms.


The Arts Society Bath has a friendly, active membership who share an appreciation of and commitment to the arts.


Following months when we enjoyed lectures on Zoom, our 2021/22 season of monthly lectures continues with in-person lectures at our new venue, Widcombe Social Club, Widcombe Hill, Bath and at a new time, 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.​

To ensure that we are as safe as possible in our new venue, we have put a Covid-Safe Protocol in place. Please click here to view the Protocol.

The society is also investigating whether we are able to hold lectures on Zoom as well as in person. More information will be available in due course.


The Arts Society Bath promotes its aims through lectures (nine per season running from October to June) on fine and decorative arts in the widest sense and through Special Interest Days, as well as visits and trips away. We also promote arts for the young through Young Arts and the not so young in Community Arts. Our members are also involved in other volunteering activities such as Church Recording and Heritage Volunteers.
