Welcome to The Arts Society Vale of Aylesbury

 

 

ALL OF OUR EVENTS  HAVE BEEN POSTPONED/CANCELLED UNTIL SEPTEMBER DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS OUBREAK.

The Arts Sociey Vale of Aylesbury is number 2 in seniority of the many Societies that make up The Arts Society (previously NADFAS). The year 2015, marked our 50th anniversary.

We meet for lectures generally on the first Tuesday of the month.  Exceptions are July & August when we do not meet & September when we usually meet on the second Tuesday.

We meet at Chinnor Rugby Club in Thame. Meetings start at 3:30 pm with biscuits & tea or coffee beforehand and finish at around 4:45 pm.

Every year, we also run three Study Days & hold five or six UK visits. Study Days enable us to learn about a subject in greater detail than a single lecture allows. Coffee is served from 10 am and the morning lecture will start at 10:30am. We finish at about 2:30pm.  The cost is £22 which includes coffee and biscuits on arrival as well as soft drinks or wine with your lunch. Please remember to bring your own packed lunch.

In addition we run short break holidays to places of cultural interest in the UK and abroad.

We currently have approximately 260 members but we operate a waiting list for prospective new members.
