Dear All

It has been a great pleasure to meet so many of you for our zoom lectures, and also to have your support for the Arts in what has been a difficult year for us all.

Our lectures have now finished, until we restart in September, which will be the 40th season for Bowdon Arts Society since it was founded by Helen Whitehouse.  A Ruby Season!  It is our intention to return to the Bowdon Rooms for our first lecture on the 20th September and I do hope you will join us.  It will be good to meet up with friends, and the refurbished Bowdon Rooms are looking magnificent.   Should circumstances change however, and meetings at the Bowdon Rooms not prove possible, then we will revert to zoom lectures, which have proved effective and popular, until real meetings can resume.

We are currently finalising our programme, but our first lecturer will be Rosalind Whyte on L S Lowry.  Details of the full 2021/22 programme will be available to members in mid-August.

We are now asking you to renew your membership for this coming season, at the very competitive rate of £40 per person.  As you know, your membership not only gives you access to the lectures organised by Bowdon Arts Society, but also to the many and varied offerings from the Arts Society centrally and from the North West Area.  By renewing your membership you will also importantly be supporting our Volunteer groups.  There is also a holiday in October taking in Glyndebourne and, of course, next week, a ‘pop up’ visit to RHS Bridgewater.

You generously supported in 2020/21 and I do hope you will feel able to continue your support for the Arts in 2021/22 by renewing your membership.  All renewals should be with our Membership Secretary Roger Turner by 31st July.

Sue Park and Mary Rollings

Joint Chairman, Bowdon Arts Society


To renew your membership, please send your details and cheque for £40 per person made payable to The Arts Society Bowdon to reach the Membership Secretary:
