The Arts Society Ribble & Craven
The Arts Society Ribble & Craven is a regional society within The Arts Society; a national organisation that supports a vibrant network of local Arts Societies. The Arts Society is a leading arts charity which opens up the world of the arts throughout the country via monthly lectures and national events. Local Societies bring together groups of like-minded individuals through regular meetings, study days, visits, tours and volunteering activities.
The Arts Society Ribble & Craven meet for our excellent lectures in the village hall of Bolton-By-Bowland, Lancashire. They take place on the 2nd Wednesday of every month except April, July and August. It is our aim to deliver educational, artistic and heritage activities, reaching deep into surrounding communities. Alongside our events programme, we have a volunteering programme which enables members to get involved with Church Recording, Church Trails, Heritage Volunteering and Arts Volunteering.
We sincerely hope that our website will inspire you to join us and/or build your appreciation of local and national fine art institutions and initiatives. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
