The Arts Society Cheltenham is a local branch of The Arts Society.

From September to June we organise a programme of Lectures, Short Talks, Study Days and Visits. Our speakers are of national or international reputation and have been vetted by The Arts Society, or are of an equivalent high standard. We also support local Projects. In particular we are associated with the national movement of Church Recorders; the Heritage Volunteers, and Young Arts Association.
