Welcome to The Arts Society Ballinger

We are a small, friendly member society of The Arts Society. We meet monthly for illustrated art-based lectures on a wide variety of subjects by professional speakers in their specialist fields. It is usually possible to welcome members' friends and visitors to attend as guests.

As our meetings are in the evening we provide the chance for those who work during the day to join us too. Above all we want to offer interest and enjoyment in a convivial environment. We organize visits to art galleries, museums and places of special historic or architectural interest. We are involved in activities such as Young Arts and Heritage Volunteers.

Our next lecture at 8pm on 28th March will be:

From Bronzes to Banksy - an armchair tour of public art and street art

London has a world-class reputation for art in it's many galleries but this a talk about the remarkable range of art outside in the streets. We tour around the capital discovering some of the most interesting works from across the centuries.
