Welcome to The Arts Society Sheffield  website.

Whether you are one of our 300 members or a visitor we hope you will find this site interesting, informative and easy to use.

We are one of 360 societies throughout the UK and Europe affiliated to The Arts Society. We meet at 11am on the third Thursday of the month at Tapton Masonic Hall, Ranmoor. Our objective, through inspiring lectures, visits, Special Interest Days and heritage projects, is to broaden our knowledge and enjoyment of the decorative and fine arts with like minded and friendly people.

Our lecturers are chosen for their knowledge, presentational skills and entertainment value. They speak on a wide variety of topics: architecture, artists and designers, china, glass, furniture, jewellery, music , painting and much much more, covering ancient history to modern times. Before the lecture you can chat with members over a coffee. Lunch facilities are available after the lecture.

Our visits include country houses, exhibitions, gardens and other places of interest. For those who enjoy hearing about a subject in greater depth, we have Special Interest Days, which enable the topic to be presented in more detail. Members can get involved in their local heritage via church recording and church trails, Young Arts and other heritage projects.
