Welcome to The Arts Society Wokingham

Founded in 2014, The Arts Society Wokingham meets on the fourth Thursday of every month (except in August and December) at Newbold College, Binfield to listen to talks covering all aspects of the arts including painting, theatre, music, architecture and photography. Our lecturers are all experts in their field, authoritative, and entertaining public speakers. Go to the Lectures section for further details.

The Society organizes group visits to a wide variety of places of historic and artistic interest as well as organising regular Study Days which cover topics in more depth. These Study Days are held locally. More details are available in the Visits and Special Interest/Study Days sections.

One of the Society’s aims is to get involved in community projects. This year we have an ambitious Young Arts programme which plans to make a difference to young lives by reaching out into the local Community and helping and encouraging young people to expand their horizons and realise their personal potential through involvement in creative arts activities.

We have an established Church Recording Group which has nearly completed its first project at St James Finchampstead.
