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.

 Following the latest advice from the government, we have taken the decision to cancel our lectures for April, May and June. We will take a final decision concerning the July lecture and AGM at a later date

Members who booked on the Prague holiday have been contacted directly. 

The Munnings trip has been postponed until later in the year and we are reviewing the June walk date as this currently falls just outside the isolation period.

Your committee look forward to seeing you all soon.

Keep well and take care
