Currently we have over 150 members, each lecture is attended by about 120 members and 3 or 4 visitors. At the moment our yearly subscription is £42 per person due on 1st January each year. We do not have a joining fee. Members who are eligible to Gift Aid their subs are invited to do so. Most of this money will go to 'Head Office' but we receive a small amount and it all helps the accounts. Visitors are welcome to attend a lecture for a fee of £8.00 per lecture.

If you would like to join us please turn up on lecture day and see our Treasurer Eddie Gavigan. He will be happy to chat and give you a pack that includes the relevant membership forms for both The Arts Society (TAS) and The Arts Society,Havering (TASH).

From the National Association, members receive a copy of 'The Arts Society Review'. This high quality, quarterly publication keeps members up-to-date with arts news. It lists TAS events and activities across the country and carries exclusive features by leading arts writers. The membership card entitles you to a reduced entrance fee for various art-related exhibitions and events. These are concessionary rates that are available to senior citizens but have been extended to TAS members. They are not additional and cannot be used with other offers.

You are very welcome just to attend the lectures or if you are keen to help we are often looking for new committee members, volunteers for the coffee rota or possibly the Church Recorders Group.
