Welcome to the website of The Arts Society Wimbledon

We are a Member Society of The Arts Society, the operating name of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS). We were originally called WIDFAS. Our objective, through lectures and visits, is to broaden knowledge and enjoyment of the arts and share the experience with like-minded friendly people. We meet on the second Wednesday of each month (except July and August) at 8:00pm for a wide range of illustrated lectures by speakers who are all experts in their own specialist fields. Coffee is served from 7:30pm. We also organise day visits to art galleries, museums, places of special historic or architectural interest and longer trips in the UK or abroad. There are opportunities for members to work as Heritage Volunteers and to support Young Arts projects. Details of all of the above can be found in these web pages. We hope that you find this information helpful and enjoy reading about our programmes. If you would like to join the society in 2020 please click on the Documents link found under the 'Our Society' tab above where you will find an application form.
