Welcome to the website of the Arts SocietyTotnes

(formerlyTotnes Decorative & Fine Arts Society)

The Arts Society Totnes (TAS Totnes)  is one of over 340 independent member societies of The Arts Society with more than a total of 90,000 members worldwide.   Its aims are to conserve our heritage and promote an appreciation of decorative and fine arts.

The Totnes Society was founded in 1990 and currently has around 240 members living in and around Totnes and the surrounding areas.   Our aim is to inform and interest people through the appreciation and study of decorative and fine arts including painting and  painters, music and musicians, literature, furniture, mosaics and architecture from around the world, through an extensive lecture and visit programme.   We also provide the opportunity for children and young people to become involved in creative art activity through Young Arts and Church Trail projects and also for people of all ages to become involved in heritage and conservation projects in the surrounding areas.

The Lectures are given in the Barn Cinema within the stunning surroundings of Dartington Hall and Gardens.
