Welcome to The Arts Society Limpsfield 

Our Society began as Limpsfield Decorative and Fine Arts Society over 40 years ago and now has around 450 members.  Whilst our members come primarily from the Oxted and Limpsfield area, many also come from surrounding towns and  villages.  We hold one lecture a month with afternoon and evening sessions. 

We cover a wide range of interests. On the last Wednesday of the month, except for July and August, in the afternoon and evening, we enjoy an illustrated lecture by a highly qualified speaker in St Peter’s Hall, Limpsfield. Topics range from paintings and ceramics to architecture and garden design – whatever takes our interest. Visits are arranged to historic houses, gardens, art galleries and museums either by coach or if we are going into London, members normally make their own way.

Two study days are organised each year to look at a subject in greater depth. There are social activities and at least one cultural tour is organised a year, either at home or abroad for our members. We are active in the community particularly with Young Arts where we have been giving support to Junior Schools in our area.  There is a Church Records project and  we also supply guides for Titsey Place, a local historic country house. 

Our goal is simple: to explore art in its widest interpretation and enjoy ourselves in the process! New members and guests are very welcome. 

We believe there is something in the programme for everyone and welcome new ideas

See the Join Us section for details of how to join us.

Outcome of the Special General Meeting (SGM) of 30th May

The SGM was convened to consider a proposal from the Committee that references in the Rules of the Society to three year restrictions of tenure on the Committee be removed, while retaining the requirement for the annual election of all Committee members at the AGM. Those present voted as follows: for the proposal 49; against the proposal 7, abstentions 7. The proposal was therefore carried. It was agreed further that the current Committee would recommend to the next Committee that they carry out a general review of the Rules of the Society.
