It is our principal mission to interest, educate and entertain our members, mainly through monthly talks. These are in a friendly and informal atmosphere and use a very wide definition of decorative and fine arts. Our venue is Tapton Masonic Hall, Shore Lane, Sheffield S10 3BU. Our highly qualified lecturers are chosen from an extensive list approved by The Arts Society, our national organisation.
Joining The Arts Society Hallamshire opens up more than just the lecture programme; many other chances exist for more in-depth study or for social contact with like minded people.
