The Arts Society promotes and helps to preserve the arts through lectures, events, study days, visits and tours, at National, Area and Society level.

The TAS Lincoln programme runs from October to July with 9 meetings over 10 months (we do not have a meeting in January).  Lectures take place on the 2nd Monday of each month at 7.30 pm in the Lecture Theatre in the Robert Hardy Building at Bishop Grosseteste College.

Our objective, through lectures and visits, is to broaden members’ knowledge and enjoyment of the decorative and visual arts. Society membership is for those with artistic interests of all ages, and is an excellent way to meet and make friends with those with similar interests.

If you are interested in finding out more, please contact our membership secretary, Dianna Broadmeadow, tel: 01507 354288. We currently do not have a waiting list.  Our membership fee is £50.00 which includes 9 lectures and four Arts Society magazines a year.  Guests are welcome at our meetings although we appreciate a donation of £8 towards our meeting costs and notification of guests attending should be given prior to the meeting to our Membership Secretary.

NEXT MEETING will be on Monday 11 March 2019 at 7.30 p.m.

Tattershall Castle: Building a History

Currently the subject of a three year piece of doctoral research, Tattershall Castle in Lincolnshire is familiar to many as an iconic Medieval brick tower constructed for Ralph Cromwell, Lord Treasurer of England. Surprisingly there has never been a major study of the site, its wider landscape and architectural influence. This lecture relays current interpretations of Tattershall as part of an ongoing research project by the University of Nottingham and the National Trust.
