The Arts Society Chipstead

is the local society of The Arts Society (TAS) covering not only Chipstead but also Banstead, Nork, Woodmansterne and the surrounding areas.

We are a friendly group with a membership of 320. We meet on the first Wednesday of the month (except July and August) in the Banstead Community Hall for coffee at 9.50 am followed by a lecture.

Our speakers are drawn from a directory maintained by TAS and they are all experts in their own specialist field of the decorative or fine arts. In addition to our monthly meetings we organise study days, coach outings to historic houses, art galleries etc and twice a year take groups away for trips of four or five days further afield.
