The Arts Society Weybridge

Weybridge Decorative & Fine Arts Society was founded in 2000. We are affiliated to The Arts Society formerly known as the National Association for Decorative & Fine Arts. In October 2017, following the lead of The Arts Society, we changed our name to The Arts Society Weybridge.

Our primary activity is a programme of lectures with a guest speaker. These talks take place at Whiteley Village Hall, Octagon Road, off Burwood Road, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey KT12 4EH, at 10.30 am on the second Wednesday of each month (except July).

We also arrange visits to local places of interest, and trips abroad.
