Welcome to Vectis DFAS, the evening society based in Newport on the Isle of Wight and a member of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies, a leading arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of local Societies and national events.

We are a very friendly group, which get together to enjoy monthly illustrated art-based lectures from October to June each year. The committee members arrange other cultural and social activities.

We meet at Quay Arts centre in Sea Street, Newport and welcome new members, their friends, visitors and students and offer the opportunity for those who work during the day to join us too. Our lectures and visits are wide ranging, Some are traditional in content and some more challenging. Above all we want to offer enjoyment in a convivial environment.

For more information and to download a membership form then visit the "About Us" pages of this website and look through the lectures and visits pages to get a flavour of what we have to offer.This coming season should prove an exciting one.

Airedale Solutions have rebranded our web site to The Arts Society. If it looks a little odd please press the F5 key on your keyboard or the circular arrow on your browser whilst viewing the page. That will remove old pages from your computer so that you can view the new ones.
