Welcome to The Arts Society Bodmin

We are a group of people who enjoy art in its various forms. Our Society is affiliated to The Arts Society.  

Our objective, through lectures, discovery days and visits, is to broaden our knowledge and enjoyment , the decorative and visual arts. At our lecture meetings we hear experts, chosen for their knowledge, presentational skills and entertainment value, speak on a huge variety of topics. These include architecture, artists and designers, china, glass, painting, music, furniture, sculpture, jewellery …. and much more covering prehistory to modern times.

The Visits may include country houses, exhibitions, gardens and places of interest. For those who enjoy hearing about a subject in greater depth, we have Study Days which allow the speaker more time on his subject.

This website shows the full extent of our activities so, why not take the time to have a tour and perhaps we’ll see you at one of our meetings?

Venue change in January, February and March 2020

We apologise but the Shire House Suite in Bodmin is being refurbished early next year.
As a result, our lectures in January, February amd March 2020 will be in the Town Hall, Wadebridge, with registration as usual from 1.45pm.

You may download here a map of the centre of Wadebidge to see where you can park and walk to the Town Hall.
