We are in the process of changing our website to reflect its new name and format. It will present some anomalies which we will correct as soon as possible.
Welcome to The Arts Society Teme Valley. We were founded in 1976 so we are one of the oldest member societies of The Arts Society (formerly known as NADFAS) Like all the afilliated Arts Societies we aim to promote the appreciation of the decorative and fine arts and the preservation of our artistic heritage.
We hold lectures on a wide variety of subjects in the afternoon of the third Wednesday of the month from September to May, excluding December. These are given by Arts Society accredited lecturers who are all highly qualified and experts in their chosen field. A Full list is in the Lectures section. We also hold two study days a year, led by Arts Society lecturers, when topics are explored in greater depth during morning and afternoon sessions. Sometimes members are invited to bring relevant artefacts for the lecturers to examine. For proposed events see the Study Days section.
The society organises two or three visits a year to museums, historic house and exhibitions. Some are whole day, some are half-day events. For proposed outings see the 'visits' section. TThe Arts Society Teme Valley's Church Recording Group is now completing its work on two churches but has no further work in prospect. We need a new leader and an enthusiastic group of volunteers to seek out and undertake new projects. A team of heritage volunteers working at Berrington Hall NT have completed work on a set of period costumes and they too are looking forward to retirement. We have formed a new group to help develop the project to conserve and display the Ludlow Castle Heritage Roll and would welcome volunteers to offer help as this develops. A further team is being put together to provide help and assistance to a young arts project involving homeless young people.
