Welcome to The Arts Society Vale of Aylesbury

 

 

The Arts Sociey Vale of Aylesbury is number two 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 St Peter & St Paul Church in Dinton. Meetings start at 1:45 pm with biscuits & tea or coffee afterwards and finish at around 3:15 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; we hold them at The Spread Eagle in Thame. 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 with your lunch. If you want a small glass of wine with lunch, the cost is £24. 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 220 members but we operate a waiting list for prospective new members.
