The Arts Society Kingston organise an exciting programme of monthly arts lectures, study days and visits. In addition, Members have the opportunity to join a broad range of hands-on preservation and conservation projects. Our current membership numbers over 280.

We offer:

  • A monthly series of lectures (September – July) given by highly qualified speakers who are experts in their field. Usually on the third Monday of the month, 7.30pm for the lecture starting at 8.00pm, finishing 9.00-9.15pm
  • Special Interest Days where a particular subject can be looked at in depth
  • Visits to galleries, museums, historic houses and gardens and other diverse places of interest
  • An annual fine arts tour alternating each year between the UK and abroad

All our activities are organised by an elected voluntary committee of ten. The Society normally meets on the third Monday of each month (see lecture programme for exact dates). Guests are welcome (for a small donation) so please come along and meet us.

We are also part of the Greater London Area group of societies who organise various events, lectures etc in the London area. Details can be found on their website:

CHOIRS FOR EVERYONE - now watch the film!

Saturday October 5th 2019   All Saints Church, Kingston

Our Concert was a resounding success!

Attended by the Mayor of Kingston, Councillor Margaret Thompson and her husband Professor Richard Thompson, a packed church was treated to music and songs from 4 choirs: Euphonix, Chirpy Cheeps, Singing it Back and the Chaps Choir. The earlier start meant parents brought children, and they excitedly joined in songs from the Lion King and tunes from Abba!

Each year through our Young Arts programme we support access to the arts for children and young people. This our second concert raised funds to finance music workshops for local children with learning disabilities. 

£2000 was raised. Thank you to everyone who supported this event
