The Arts Society Canterbury is a  leading arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of local Societies and national events and works to advance decorative and fine arts education and appreciation, alongside promoting the conservation of our artistic heritage.

With inspiring monthly lectures given by some of the country’s top experts, together with days of special interest, educational visits and cultural holidays, The Arts Society is a great way to learn, have fun and make new and lasting friendships. Members can also become involved in worthwhile conservation volunteering projects in churches, museums, castles and stately homes.

The Canterbury branch of The Arts Society has its monthly lecture meetings on the third Wednesday of the month in the morning and has occasional study days in the hall. It holds its quarterly committee meetings in the committee room.

2019 AGM Report

It has been a privilege to continue as a regular user of this wonderful hall. TASC – the Arts Society Canterbury (formally NADFAS) meet on the middle Wednesday of most months for coffee and a lecture which starts at 11 a.m. We also organise Outings and Special Interest Days.

We are Affiliated to The Arts Society and therefore part of a network of over 90,000 people worldwide who are brought together through a shared curiosity for the arts and our artistic heritage.

We very much appreciate the help given us by the ARCA committee.
