The Arts Society Diss

We are a friendly society which presents lively lectures at the Diss Corn Hall from September to June. We welcome new members and organise arts days, visits and much more. Please visit our site at for details.


Dame Laura Knight (1877-1970) is generally regarded as the greatest British female artist of C20th. Her subjects are far-ranging, including ballet, circus, gypsies, aristocracy, the Nuremburg trials. Evelyn Dunbar (1906-1960) is far less known, but is coming into her own following the exhibition at Pallant House Gallery in 2015-16. She was the official WW2 artist, specialising in views of the Women's Land Army at work in the countryside, such as bailing hay and milking. Our illustrated lecture on the big screen may help you decide, who was the greatest?
