Welcome Message from the Chairman of The Arts Society - Woking

Since I took over as Chairman in November 2020 we have all experienced considerable changes to our routines. In the case of our society we adopted on line talks via Zoom until returning to live talks in October 2021. We meet on the second Tuesday of the month in the Normandy Village Hall (GU3 2DT). The Visits Programme resumed in June 2021 (Liverpool) with trips planned in 2022 to Winchester (6th April), Exbury Gardens and Beaulieu (Tuesday 28th June) and our traditional overseas trip this year to Nice (26th-30th September).
We warmly welcome new members. If you would like to come to one of our talks - the first one is free - or need more information please contact our Membership Secretary, Jo Pay on memdfas@gmail.com or give her a call on 01276 685293. Guests are welcome for a small donation (suggested £5).
Our prime objective is to bring people together through a shared curiosity for the arts.
We offer:
TALKS - 10 per year (apart from July and August). You can bring up to two guests for a small donation. Hear expert speakers share their specialist knowledge about the arts
VISITS - we arrange outings to places of interest including one extended tour in the UK or Europe every year
SPECIAL INTEREST DAYS - special study days are available via the West Surrey Area team
SUPPORT FOR THE ARTS - we partner with Watts Gallery in Compton to support their Watts Academy with a focus on Young Arts
LEARNING - you will receive a quarterly magazine from The Arts Society and (optional) monthly articles via e mail
The annual subscription for the Talks Programme is £50 and is allowable for Gift Aid for UK taxpayers. Visits and Special Interest Days are provided at an additional cost.
You can find out more about our various activities by clicking on the tabs at the top of this page.
As well as widening our knowledge of the Arts we do try to brighten up our days in challenging times!
I look forward to meeting you at one of our talks.
Trevor Walters
