THE ARTS SOCIETY
TAUNTON EVENING

THE ARTS SOCIETY is a national arts education and conservation charity with over 360 Societies in the UK, Europe and Australasia with almost 100,000 members,

The ‘core business’ of Societies is an annual programme of monthly lectures which bring together interesting people and brilliant lecturers to share their love of the Arts – painting, sculpture, architecture, antiques, jewellery, garden history and a host of other subjects to give a broad spectrum of arts education.

The Arts Society accredited lecturers are nationally at the top of their field and face fierce competition to be accepted.

THE ARTS SOCIETY TAUNTON EVENING (TASTE) is a relatively new Society, incorporated in 2016 with the aim of providing stimulating, interesting and enjoyable arts lectures, visits, study days and holidays. All available to members who live, work or study in and around Taunton at a low cost.

The other important aspects of the charitable work of The Arts Society members are Heritage Conservation, Church Recording, encouraging and sponsoring Young Arts and artists and organising Church Trails.

Members have access to the Study Days, visits and other aspects of The Arts Society. You will find information on all of these activities on this website under

‘Study Days’, ‘Visits’, and ‘Volunteering’.

The 25 Societies in the South West Area are supported by an Area team which also provides Study Days and annual arts courses with one in Taunton each Spring.
