Membership of The Arts Society East Herts has so much to offer: we enjoy talks on a wide range of subjects, learn about new topics and make new friends.

Our lectures are given by renowned experts who share their knowledge and expertise in a way that is both stimulating and entertaining.

Lectures take place at 10.30am at the Spotlight, Hoddesdon (formerly known as Broxbourne Civic Hall). Coffee is served from 10am giving everyone an opportunity to meet other members and visitors before the lecture.

Our programme of lectures are augmented by our special interest days and visits to places of interest.


Annual membership runs from January to December.

The current membership fee is just £35 for an individual and £65 for a couple. This entitles you to attend 9 lectures a year free of charge (there are no lectures in July, August and December), and you can go on outings or attend special interest days for an extra charge (subject to availability).

Student concessions available on production of a valid student ID.

New members are very welcome. Contact our Membership Secretary  to join, or to find out more. Alternatively you can join by completing a Subscription form. Or you might like initially to come along as a visitor, for £5 a lecture, refundable if you join straight after the lecture.
