Membership of The Arts Society - Birmingham Evening (formerly BEDFAS) has so much to offer:  learn about new arts-related topics, explore your city, make new friends and learn new skills.


Our lectures are given by renowned experts who share their knowledge and expertise in a way that is both stimulating and entertaining.


Lectures take place at 7.00 pm (doors open at 6.00 pm) at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, located at the University of Birmingham.  Every lecture is preceded by the opportunity to meet with other members and visitors.


The Barber's galleries are open from 6.00 - 7.00 pm with free admission to the temporary exhibitions and permanent collections.  We often have the chance to find out more about what the Barber has on offer with mini lectures from the Barber staff and volunteers.
