Welcome to The Arts Society Eastbourne

Founded in 1973 under its original name, The Eastbourne Decorative and Fine Arts Society, The Arts Society Eastbourne (TASE) adopted its new name following the Society’s launch of a new “look” nationally in May 2017. It is a thriving Society with a membership of over 200, meeting at the delightful East Dean & Friston Village Hall, located 4 miles west of Eastbourne.
 
An exciting core programme consists of monthly lectures together with local visits, day trips and tours. The lectures cover a very wide spectrum including in recent years architecture, pottery, opera, camouflage, gardens, postcards, jewellery, theatrical personalities, fireworks, and  of course sculpture & paintings of all periods and cultures. Visits organised last year included Temple Place London, Hever Castle, a tour of Liverpool and the NW, Watts gallery, Chichester & Champs Hill, a tour in Holland, and an excursion to the churches of Romney Marsh.
 
Other activities of the Society include participation in Church Recording  (with a presentation of a project last June at Piddinghoe), support of the Sussex Young Arts, and conservation work at the Redoubt Museum. Two study days have been held, at the Eastbourne Towner, and at the Eastbourne College .

We are currently seeking a successor for  the Chair of our Committee. Please review the two documents appended which include a description of the role of the Chair, and contact Dorothy Watson if you are interested or need further information.
