Berkhamsted Arts Trust was formed to encourage and promote the arts in Berkhamsted. It comprises over twenty Arts Organisations based in the local area which promote arts events open to members of the public.

The Trust originated as the Berkhamsted Arts Association in 1961 and became a registered charity under its present title in 1977.

The Arts Diary was first published in 1985 to co-ordinate a Spring Arts Festival and has expanded since into its present annual form. While most of the events take place within Berkhamsted, the diary contains information about events outside Berkhamsted that are arranged by member organisations primarily for Berkhamsted residents. These events are usually events which cannot be held locally because suitable facilities are not available.
