The Arts Society Mid Somerset

Welcome to our Society

The Arts Society Mid Somerset, founded in 1991, is a member society of the The Arts Society (originally the National Association of Decorative and Fine Art Societies - NADFAS), formed in 1968 by the late Patricia Fay OBE to stimulate interest and to increase knowledge of a wide field of fine arts subjects.

Lectures are held in Caryford Hall, Ansford, Castle Cary normally on the third Tuesday of the month, except for August and September when there are no lectures. There is extensive free parking at this attractive modern hall which has a 'hearing loop'.

The ten Tuesday morning lectures, given by professional speakers, are our core activity for the year. There are also visits throughout the year to exhibitions, museums, art galleries, country houses and gardens. The Society is a very friendly group of people who enjoy sharing the same interests.

The affairs of the Society are managed by a committee of elected members. The AGM is held in April.
