The Arts Society Horsley

We are a friendly and thriving society of around 200 members who meet together every month (except August and September) to learn more about the arts. We are affiliated to the national Arts Society, and we use lecturers from their directory of over 250 speakers who are experts in their fields. 

Our monthly lectures cover different aspects of the arts, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass, gold, silverware, jewellery, embroidery, furniture, architecture, music, dance, theatre, film and literature.

For an annual subscription of £42 you can attend our 10 lectures a year (this includes tea/coffee served beforehand). We also have a party following our Christmas and July lectures. 

Other benefits include our monthly newsletter, access to Special Interest Mornings organised by the Area Society and a quarterly copy of The Arts Society Review.

Our meetings are held on the morning of the second Wednesday of each month, at East Horsley Village Hall (Kingston Avenue, East Horsley, Surrey KT24 6QT). Free parking is available both outside the village hall (limited places) and in the nearby car park behind the village shops. 

The lectures begin about 10:30am and usually last between 60 and 75 minutes.

An RPO concert on 14th November

John Rutter will conduct an entire programme of his very own resplendent works within the sublime surroundings of one of the world’s most celebrated landmarks, St Paul’s Cathedral. With Mary Bevan as soprano and The Bach Choir, we will hear Rutter's Cantate Domino, The Lord is My Light and My Salvation, Four Meditations for Orchestra and his pognant Requiem.

Ticket prices are £62 for seats under the dome and £58 for seats behind these in the front knave. This price includes the concert brochure (normally £5 extra), the coach journeys and parking at KGV car park. The seats alone would normally cost £60 and £55, and so the coach trips are effectively free (and coach prices have just increased by £100 to cover the new London emission charge, making this even more value for money!). 

We will leave KGV car park at 5:30pm and the concert starts at 7:30pm, with us returning to the car park by 10:30pm.

Whilst all the tickets have been sold for this outing, we have set up a waiting list, so if you'd like your name to be added to the waiting list, please just email
