If you are not a member of THE ARTS SOCIETY I am delighted to welcome you to our new website and hope that you may find a society to join which will suit you.  Please click on the tab “Our Societies” where you will find comprehensive information about the eighteen societies in the WEST SURREY AREA.

I would also warmly welcome all our 4,500 members to the website and would be pleased to know if there is anything more that you would like us to feature.

During 2018 we are celebrating our golden anniversary. To take us forward we have changed our operating name from “NADFAS” to “THE ARTS SOCIETY” because we wanted a name that more clearly tells everyone what we are.   

Each society has around ten lectures per year. The brilliance of our 324 accredited Lecturers is that their lectures have appeal to both those who know lots about the arts as well as to those who do not but want to find out more. Apart from lectures we do much more including our UK and overseas art tours which continue to gain in popularity.  

Our Founder, Patricia Fay, was insistent that while we satisfy our curiosity about the arts, we must have fun whilst doing so. 

Yours sincerely,

Caroline Coleman

West Surrey Area Chairman
