An Update on what the Publicity and Programme Group have been doing
Dear All – Unusual times
All Arts Society activities have been suspended on both a National and local level and there is much uncertainty about when or how normal service will resume. Rest assured your committee at the Arts Society Teme Valley is still working behind the scenes preparing a programme for the next year in the certain hope we can all meet again sometime before the end of 2020. We have already booked lectures by: Sandy Burnett on Beethoven at 250; Christopher de Hamel on Duc de Berry; Anne Anderson on How we got to IKEA and Bertie Pearce on Wonder Workers and the Art of Illusion. We will be booking further lecturers shortly.
Many of the committee have been following with interest the exciting opportunities provided by the Arts Society website. If you haven’t logged onto this please do - https://theartssociety.org/ and connected.theartssociety.org where there is an excellent series of short lectures which so far have included Jacqueline Cockburn on Las Meninas and Sarah Dunant on Venice, Dressed and Undressed. Future lectures include:
Mark Hill: 5 May
Nicola Moorby: 19 May
Marc Allum: 2 June
Rebecca Hossack: 16 June
Sandy Burnett: 30 June
We have also been enjoying the BBC series on Museums in quarantine.

Stay well, stay in touch with the Arts and let us celebrate a new year of our Arts Society soon.

The Arts Society Teme Valley
Welcome to The Arts Society Teme Valley. We draw our members from across the community and are dedicated to promoting the appreciation and enjoyment of the Arts. We look at the history and contribution to our heritage of all forms of the Arts in their many guises including painting, sculpture, design, theatre, music and architecture.
We are proud of our series of well-supported lectures given by renowned experts on a wide variety of interesting subjects. They are held on the 3rd Wednesday each month from September to May in the Ludlow Assembly Rooms. See Lectures for more information. We also organize Study Days, and Visits. Other events will be advertised from time to time.
Come and join us on a Wednesday afternoon from two o’clock at the Ludlow Assembly Rooms to find out more and enjoy listening to a talk about something you had never realized was so fascinating.
To find out how to join us or become a member and find out more about us, please click on Join Us and the other tabs above. We are a member of The Arts Society and are part of The Arts Society West Mercia area.
Owing to renovation works currently being carried out by the Ludlow Assembly Rooms (LAR), from now until further notice, Lectures will take place in Oscars, NOT in the auditorium. The coffee and tea sessions after the Lectures will be held in the Studio. LAR will provide signage to enable visitors to find Oscars as the usual entrance will be closed. Should the improvement works at LAR ever preclude the use of Oscars, details of an alternative venue will be published here.
LECTURE PROGRAMME 2020/21
Further information on the Lectures mentioned above will be included on the Lectures page once it becomes available.
Visitors welcome, pay £8 at the door
You can read a review of some Lectures after they have been given by navigating to "Previous Lectures" on the Lectures Page. Click on the particular Lecture in which you are interested and, if it exists, the Review will be found beneath the Description of the Lecture. To read reviews of some of the Study Days or Visits, follow the same principle as above but navigate first to the relevant page ie "Study Days" or "Visits" and then proceed as above.
