We currently have some 150 members and no waiting list; so new members from Sutton Coldfield and surrounding districts are very welcome. To sustain membership, members are normally required to attend at least 4 lectures per year, but if this is not possible due to personal circumstances, please advise the Membership Secretary.

The subscription for the 2019 - 2020 lecture season is £50, (or pro-rata according to the month you join) entitling members to attend the ten monthly meetings and to participate in other advertised events. Society membership includes membership of The Arts Society itself, and you will also receive  The Arts Society Magazine, a beautifully illustrated glossy magazine with special features on arts topics, news of arts events and exhibitions, societies' news and many other features, as well as relevant advertisements, which is published quarterly. Some events organised by The Arts Society or the West Midlands Area of The Arts Society are available for our members to attend.

Visitors and members' guests are welcome to attend up to 3 lectures a year, but we request that the Membership Secretary be advised beforehand. There is a £5 fee for all visitors/guests, and everyone attending a lecture must register on arrival.

National Membership

For those who are interested in the arts but are unable to attend lectures, Affiliated Membership of The Arts Society is available for £10 per annum. This entitles members to attend events organized by The Arts Society and to receive The Arts Society Magazine, but they are not entitled to attend the meetings of any local member society (such as this Society) except as visitors.
