The Arts Society Crosby has flourished for half a century since its foundation by Mrs Jay Atkinson in 1969. Our aim is to promote and foster enjoyment and understanding of the arts through monthly lectures, visits and support for educational and community activities. We have a varied programme running throughout the year, full details of which can be found on this website.

The Society is a member of The Arts Society that was founded in 1968 as the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies. The Arts Society works to advance decorative and fine arts education and appreciation, alongside promoting the preservation of artistic heritage. It is a UK-based charity and supports a network of over 360 local societies across the country – Crosby`s was the 19th of these to be established. In addition, it supports a number of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies in mainland Europe and Australasia.
