Welcome to The Arts Society Uckfield, Lewes & Newick


A Christmas and New Year Message from our Chair Annette Shelford

Happy Christmas everyone.  I'm very much looking forward to seeing those who have booked for the Xmas lunch - to be followed by a really wonderful lecture on Schubert by Graham Griffiths.

Then, into the New Year 2020.  What will it bring?  Well, to start with, a lovely lecture by Tim Redmond on Big Ben.  You will hear it chime in the New Year, but otherwise it is silent, due to renovations!

Again, may I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Annette Shelford
