If you are interested in the Fine Arts and you live in the Chilterns, our Society may be for you.

We invite you to explore this website to find out more about our activities. The Arts Society Chiltern  has grown from a small group set up by Patricia Fay that first met in 1965 to study and enjoy the Fine Arts and antiques, to a thriving society of 300 members.

The original concept of promoting education, appreciation and conservation in the Fine Arts grew and led to the formation of many other societies and to the setting up of the national and worldwide NADFAS.

We meet for regular lectures on art-related subjects given by outstanding speakers; we have study days, day trips to venues of interest and cultural tours; and we have many volunteering opportunities in helping to preserve our heritage, as well as promoting Young Arts programmes. Come and join us!

It is with immense sadness that we report the passing of Barbara Cullimore MBE, Vice-President and Heritage Volunteers Leader, on Saturday 16th March. 

Barbara was a tour de force, leading the Heritage Volunteers over many years, working latterly at Chequers Library archiving their books. She was much admired and loved within the Society and brought warmth and joy to everything she did. She will be much missed.

We pass on our deepest condolences to Barbara's daughter Nicky Leitch and grandsons Tom and Harry.

A full tribute will be made at a later date.
