THAMES ESTUARY

 

 

The Arts Society Thames Estuary (TEDFAS) 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.


 

Coming up on May 1st  - Lucrezia Walker will tell us about John Peter Russell, the Australian impressionist. Go to the Lectures page to learn more.

 

We have a couple of visits planned for later this year too -take a look at the Visits and Holidays page for more information.
