The Arts Society Lymington


We are The Arts Society Lymington.  We welcome established and new members and visitors to our evening meetings, held on the second Wednesday of each month from September to June at 7.00 for 7.30.

Season 2018-2019

January continued our enjoyment, with Adam Busiakiewicz entertaining us with beautiful pictures of the Lute through the ages and intermittent live performances of lute music.  The full review is on the Review of the Last Lecture page.


We make a selection of ten different subjects each season covering a wide spectrum of interest in the arts fields with a question and answer session with the speaker at the end of the hour's talk.

Special Interest Day

Come and join us for our next Special Interest Day.   It will be on February 21st.

Dr Anne Anderson will  tell us about Lord Leighton, his 'Palace of Arts' in Holland Park and the pockets of like minded artists which sprang up scattered around London.

Full details on Special Interest Day page.

The Speakers.  

All our speakers are well qualified and good at delivering interesting and stimulating talks to their audiences.  The topics from which we choose our lectures cover all the arts, from Old Masters to modern jewellery, beautiful old buildings to modern sculpture.  

The Arts Society

For years we were called The Lymington Decorative and Fine Arts Society, and we were members of The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies - NADFAS.

NADFAS has changed its name to The Arts Society.  We have changed our name as well, in order to continue using the national body's help and information.  This means that we are able to request expert experienced lecturers to visit us and talk about their particular specialities accompanying their talks with splendid illustrative presentations.

New Year's Lunch

Ignore the miserble January weather and come to The South Lawn Hotel on January 16th. 12.00 for 12.30.  Lunch will chase away those blues and your friends will be there to join you. Full details on the New Year Lunch page.
