From Chichester in the west to Hastings in the east there are twenty four individual Societies in The Arts Society Sussex Area further details of which can be found in the Societies section.
Our Societies bring together groups of like minded individuals through regular meetings, lectures by top experts. study days, visits, tours and a number of volunteering activities including Church Recording, Heritage Volunteering and our Young Arts programmes.
