About Us

The New Longton Village Hall has been the venue for the New Longton Artists since 1979 where we have developed excellent working and exhibition facilities, i.e. large exhibition hall(s), custom made display screens, spot lighting etc.

The New Longton Artists meet each Wednesday starting at the beginning of February at the “New Longton Village Hall” . We have use of two studio rooms between 7.30pm and 10.00pm .

We are currently 45+ members working in oils, water colour, acrylics, pastels, batik and mixed media. Whilst there is no formal teaching, advice and opinion is always readily available plus members are always encouraged to broaden there creative skills by participation in our varied “Workshops” and “Demonstrations” (See “Programme” ).

Membership is currently open and we welcome those with ambition to develop their artistic skills.

Membership is currently set at £30 per year (Payable in September)

New Longton Artists has, for the last 23+ years, hosted the Central Lancashire Fine Art Fair”. This prestigious two-day event has proved very successful and historically takes place in October/November. The fair attracts over 30 accomplished artists who display and sell their work.

On work nights we have two studio rooms open and use of the Main Hall and full building amenities during our Exhibitions.


We have a Library of “Art related” books and videos for member use. Videos are available for viewing during Work Nights.

Our membership ranges from beginner hobby painters to accomplished artists and the Society attracts members from a wide geographical area.

During the Summer months, we have a programme of “Outdoor "Painting Venues".

For full details of the Outdoor programme, including maps and times, see the “Painting Venue” tab above.

New Longton Artists hold an "Annual Exhibition" in June where members can present works for display/sale.
