Welcome to the website of The Arts Society Sidmouth

We are a vibrant and friendly group whose members meet in the morning on the first Wednesday of the month in the Manor Pavilion, Sidmouth. Our aim is to provide a wide range of illustrated lectures by Arts Society speakers who are all experts in their own specialist fields. We organise study days, day visits to houses of historic interest, and at least one annual tour of five or six days. In particular we enjoy promoting activities for young artists, and being involved in cultural projects in the local community. All members are invited to attend our social events over the year including Christmas Lunches and Summer Suppers which flourish in a convivial environment. New members are very welcome. We welcome your feedback on our activities and would love to receive any comments or suggestions you may have. Please email your thoughts to:

We also have a Facebook page and please note that you do not need to be a Facebook member to see it.

The invitation and booking form for the 2017 Christmas Luncheon on December 14th can be found on the 'Docs/Forms' page of this website, or by clicking here.

Details of some of the visits and tours in 2018 have now been added to the Visits and Tours pages.

Unfortunately the EGM on November 1st to discuss the proposed new constitution (which can be found by clicking here) was inquorate, so we will have to be rescheduled it and the new one will probably be after a lecture rather than before.

Sue Ogonovsky's reports on the Cothay Visit and the Cambridge Tour are on the 'Docs/Forms' page of this website (click here).

The latest Newsletter, Number 55 can be found on the 'Docs/Forms' page of this website, or by clicking here.

At the SIDDFAS AGM on the 14th June it was agreed that we should change our name to The Arts Society Sidmouth in line with the change of name of NADFAS to The Arts Society.
