Welcome to The Arts Society Mayford web site


Founded in 1992 with our first lecture in January 1993 and based in Woking, our society is a member of The Arts Society, formerly the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies. Our aims are to increase our own understanding and enjoyment of art, to foster friendships and to support arts education and conservation in our local community. Click on ‘About Us’ to find out about our programme of lectures, visits and volunteering opportunities, and how to join us if you’re interested.
