If you are not a member of THE ARTS SOCIETY thank you for visiting our website and I hope that you may find a society to visit which will suit you.  Please click on the tab “Find a Society ” where you will see comprehensive information about the eighteen societies in the WEST SURREY AREA.

WE WELCOME NEW MEMBERS

I also warmly greet you if you are one of the  4,500 members in The WEST SURREY AREA.   I would be pleased to know if there is anything more that you would like us to feature.  You may use the "Contact Us" form to reach me.

In 2018 we celebrated our golden anniversary and, to take us forward,  our operating name was changed from “NADFAS” to “THE ARTS SOCIETY”. We believe this more clearly tells everyone what we are.   

Each society arranges around ten lectures per year so, within The West Surrey Area, that amounts to 180 talks about a wide range of topics on arts related subjects every year.  Scroll down to find the fast links to the titles and venues for the forthcoming months.

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
