There is another arts society at work in the area. It is a local meeting of the national Arts Society and their programmes of all things relating to artistic expression. They are an enthusiastic and active group interested in all aspects of the arts. Visit
to find out about a wide range of subjects from fine art and sculpture to gardens and architecture; the Terracotta Army and the Aztecs to Canaletto and Vivaldi; silver and jewellery to heraldry and furniture. No previous knowledge is necessary! And although many of our members are artists in their own right, Sparkenhoe Arts Society does not itself teach basket weaving or painting! All you need is an interest in finding out more about the world around you.
