In 1965 Patrica Fay created the Chiltern Antiques Group and by 1968 11 arts societies had come together to form the National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Society,NADFAS. In 2017 we rebranded to become THE ARTS SOCIETY.

The Wealden Society was founded in 1992. We are a vibrant society known for giving a warm welcome to all members both old and new and we take pride in continuing Patricia Fay’s belief that above all ‘it must be fun’.
