‘The Arts Society’ is the new name for ‘The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies’ (NADFAS). Founded in 1968 by Patricia Fay, The Arts Society is an arts-based charity. The Oundle Society membership of over 300 is drawn from the town and the nearby villages. We meet in Barnwell at the comfortable village hall that lies in the shadow of Barnwell Castle, the former home of the Dukes of Gloucester.
Our programme runs from September to June each year with monthly lectures and we also organise study days and outings. The Arts Society Oundle welcomes new members but does have a membership limit of 320 as the number of people we may have in our lecture venue
