During the lock-down, while our lecture programme is on hold, the committee and members have been digging around to find things that might amuse, interest and educate. There is a huge amount out there from organisations like the Globe, Royal Opera House, National Theatre, National Gallery, The Arts Society and many more.

We have attached a document which is a summary of these and easy links to find them.

Download a copy of the document here The Arts Online or Brain Food.

Also don't forget The Arts Society Connected Initiative - www.connected.theartssociety.org for Lectures At Home and the Instant Expert series of articles, together with Forum and Blogs.


We are keen for you to join our society and to share in the learning and social activity. To join or to find out more, either email us at membership@theartssocietyfalmouth.org, phone the membership secretary on 01326 251233 or download a Registration Form.


"The Arts Society is a community that wants more people to engage, to appreciate and above all to enjoy the arts and discover how they enrich our lives.”

Our society will be of interest to anyone who loves or wants to discover more about 'The Arts' - paintings, pottery, silverware, sculpture and a myriad of other subjects which come under this broad heading.

Experts have shared their knowledge on subjects as diverse as ‘The Golden Tang Dynasty’, ‘Railway Architecture’, ‘Dissolution of the Abbeys’, ‘The 12 Great Livery Companies of London’ and the ‘Monasteries of Bulgaria’.

The only way to really understand the richness of the material covered is to look at our Lecture Programme (both for this and previous years) or come along as a guest and try us out.

By joining, members are entitled to attend our excellent programme of 10 lectures a year and have the opportunity to participate in Special Interest Days and Visits.


Our monthly illustrated lectures explore a given subject and last approximately one hour. Lecturers are selected from The Arts Society directory (which lists over 3000 talks, delivered by 280 different lecturers) and are chosen for their expert knowledge and ability to present their subject in an informal and entertaining way.

Special Interest Days

Members have the option to take part in Special Interest Days (SID), previously referred to as Study Days. These give the lecturer the opportunity to explore a subject in more depth with typically three lectures spread over the day. SIDs are organised by both by the Falmouth Society and jointly with the South West Area of The Arts Society.


Our visits often give members an opportunity to visit places of interest that are not always accessible to the public.
