Although the primary task of THE ARTS SOCIETY may seem to be to provide its members with lectures, tours and special events on the arts, we also realise that if we do not  protect our artistic heritage there will soon be no art left to enjoy. Many of our members are therefore actively involved in a whole range of voluntary activities designed to support the arts in the north-east and our artistic heritage.
