The Arts Society, Tayside

September 12 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Possibly the best, the most enjoyable and varied arts lectures available, the wonderful Arts Society – theartssociety.org, a nationwide organisation – has been offering the highest quality talks for over 50 years.

It’s a friendly, sociable society. At illustrated lectures you can hear experts, chosen for their knowledge, presentational skills and entertainment value, speak on a huge variety of topics: architecture, artists and designers, china, glass, painting, music, furniture, sculpture, jewellery and much more.

The Tayside branch lectures are held in the well-equipped Birnam Arts (Birnam and Dunkeld are just off the A9, 12 miles North of Perth), leaving time for lunch after attending the lecture in the morning, or tea following the afternoon one. You can choose either time.

The Arts Society believes whole heartedly that the arts have the potential to enrich peoples’ lives and strives to be the most inclusive and influential arts society. Everyone is welcome to join the 300 members in Tayside, who meet monthly from September through to June, on the second Monday of the month, either in the morning (11am–12 noon) or the afternoon (2pm–3pm). The Arts Society Tayside (TAST) theartssocietytayside.org.uk is an affiliate society of The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS).

Do think of joining in time to start the new season 2022–23, beginning Monday, 12 September. If you are interested, and would like to try a lecture before committing, you would be most welcome to email our Chairman Jane Gordon, tastchair@gmail.com, who can arrange for you to sample one complimentary lecture, in September, to see whether this is for you. Please note that we do not normally offer our lectures individually but as part of a seasonal membership. Application forms are available by contacting Jane Gordon, our Chairman and Membership Secretary – tastmembership@gmail.com.

Forthcoming lectures encompass ‘The two great Queens of Crime’ Agatha Christie and Dorothy L Sayers, to ‘The Glasgow Girls’ a distinctive branch of the Art Nouveau movement, ‘Courts and Palaces of India’ and the ‘Roaring twenties’ – an amazing variety. See more on theartssocietytayside.org.uk.
