Welcome to The Arts Society Henfield. Scroll down for further information.

The links above the picture, and the "home" button, refer to The Arts Society in general, but do not relate directly to this society. The Arts Society Henfield was founded in 1969 as Adur Valley Fine Arts Society. 

Our monthly lectures are held at The Henfield Hall. Unless otherwise posted, commencement is at 2.30 p.m. sharp.

The committee has had an emergency meeting to find a way forward for this society. We are still trying to find a new treasurer and secretary, as we cannot operate without these two important officers. If no replacements are forthcoming then we can see no way that T.A.S. Henfield can continue in its present form. Accordingly, the following has been decided. 1) Next year’s programme will operate as normal and in full, and the subscription of £40 per person should be paid, at the very latest, by the end of this year. 2) If replacement officers are not up and running by 31.3.2023, then regrettably, we will have to contemplate not running a 2024 programme, and possibly closing down the society. After 54 years this would be a very sad event indeed and is not something this committee wishes to happen, but we have to be realistic. So, the future of this society is very much in all of our hands.

You will find in the attachments section a document for you to download so that you can tell us what lecture topics you think we should be covering, and visit possibilities, which we are trying to revive after a hiatus of a year or more. You can send these ideas and suggestions to us on our email, which is henfield@theartssociety.org.

By clicking on the blue textual links below you can view our current programme. Your back button will then return you to this page. Do not click on the "home" button or you will get lost. Our latest newsletter can be found in the "news" section at the bottom of this page. Before and after each lecture, we now offer the possibility to purchase a wide selection of books at very reduced prices. This is a new benefit for members.

Guests. We would like to remind members, and non-members, that guests can still attend our meetings. The cost is £8 per guest.

Subscriptions. Upon the advice of The Arts Society headquarters, we have been advised that our annual subscriptions should be increased. Accordingly from 21st November 2022 our annual subscription will rise to £40 per person. Please amend any standing orders you may have, with your bank, to this effect.
