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 proposed new constitution for The Arts Society Sidmouth which will be voted on at the EGM on November 1st can be found 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.

Please note that the lectures for the 2017/18 season are now on the lectures page here and the next study days are here.

The new lecture seasion is nearly upon us.......
