Do you live in or around Highgate? Are you interested in the Arts? Art History? Travelling to fascinating places with friends? The Arts Society Highgate is one of the longest established societies in The Arts Society (formerly the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Society)

We were founded in 1975 and now have around two hundred members. Arts Society Highgate members meet on the fourth Thursday of most months at the Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution in Pond Square, in the heart of Highgate Village. There's an extensive programme of fascinating lectures on Art and related subjects, by acknowledged experts who are also entertaining speakers. We visit interesting places in London and enjoy coach excursions to country houses and gardens. In addition, we organise our own tours abroad, to places as diverse as Petra, St Petersburg and Perugia.

Members can become Volunteers, working with London galleries and museums, and we link up with local schools in the Young Arts programme. The Society is run by a committee drawn from and elected by our members, and each committee member has a job to do: arranging lectures, visits, travel, membership, and so on.
