“Art, fun and friendship, that sums up exactly what we are about,” Tim Robinson, the Chairman of the Arts Society Mallorca, and I are sitting on his terrace sipping a brew. I am courageously ignoring the plate of biscuits that Sabine, his wife, has generously placed in front of us, as Tim recounts the origins of the society. “It started in 1965 when a woman called Patricia Fay led a small group of young women eager to know more about the arts. It developed from these small beginnings to what it is now, which is a leading arts education charity with a global network of over 380 local societies. The Arts Society brings people together through a shared curiosity for the arts. Their events provide welcoming places – locally, nationally and globally – to hear expert lecturers share their specialist knowledge about the arts.” And that is exactly what the Majorca branch will be doing again for the upcoming 2021/2022 season.
