The Arts Society Thames Estuary  is a member of The Arts Society (TAS), formerly known as NADFAS, which incorporates the arts of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.   Our aim is to increase enjoyment and knowledge of our cultural heritage, and to stimulate interest in its preservation. To this end, we hold a series of monthly lectures, given by expert speakers on a wide range of Decorative and Fine Arts subjects.

Our society was founded in 1989 by Mrs. Barbara Askwith, who had belonged to other NADFAS groups, and was keen to establish one in South East Essex. The society quickly grew in size and two sessions were needed to accommodate all our members at lectures.

We currently have a large membership, but we are still able to welcome new members.

It's time to get in the mood for Christmas.

We started the month with a visit to Leeds Castle complete with a festive meal and a Christmas market. Thanks are due to Hazel Green for all her work in organising it.

Our 4th December lecture also had a festive theme (if a rather unusual one) - Tobias Capwell  spoke on "Nothing says Christmas like an Axe Fight". If you were there, please give feedback by pressing on the button below.

The Arts Society Thames Estuary committee would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2020.
