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 town centre.
 
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, theatrical personalities, fireworks, and  of course sculpture & paintings of all periods and cultures. Visits were organised last year to the Tate Turner Gallery in Margate, the Powell-Cotton Museum at Quex Park, Chartwell at Westerham, Smallhythe Place, Tenterden,  Knole House, Glyndebourne, and the Jane Austin Exhibition at the Royal Pavilion Brighton
 
Other activities of the Society include participation in Church Recording projects, support of the Sussex Young Arts, and conservation work at the Redoubt Museum. A special event “Rediscover Your Society” was held in October allowing members to contribute to the programme plans.
