Welcome to The Arts Society/Rother Valley


Our Society was formed in 1979 by the first Chairman, Elizabeth Smith and at that time was not part of NADFAS. The Society invited mainly local speakers who addressed members on a wide variety of associated arts related subjects. The Society did not meet every month in order to keep costs down. However, before long the Society became a part of NADFAS and was able to benefit from everything it offered.

PLEASE NOTE:  The lectures booked for 20th April, 18th May and 15th June 2020 have been cancelled following government and public health directives about combatting Covid-19.  We currently have no date for the AGM, usually June.

Please see the Documents tab for the programme which was booked for 2020-2021.  The April, May and June 2020 lectures will be rebooked for 2021 if possible.

Renewal of membership, due from 1st May, is now deferred , most likely till September.  We hope it will be possible to resume our lectures with the one which is booked for 21st September.  We will have this under review and keep you informed.

If you have any questions about this, please phone Jenny on 01424 421344.
