Welcome to The Arts Society, Budleigh Salterton

The Arts Society, Budleigh Salterton is the operating name for Budleigh Salterton Decorative and Fine Arts Society (BUDFAS).

Our purpose is to inform about, as well as to cultivate an appreciation of, the arts. We will also involve and educate young people in the world of the arts through ‘Young Arts’ initiatives.

The Society’s focus is its programme of 9 lectures, held monthly on a Wednesday evening throughout the winter. Lectures cover a wide range of arts related subjects and will be given by eminent experts. Please also see the Programme page for further information.

Besides this, The Arts Society, Budleigh Salterton will organise visits to sites of historical and artistic interest as well as discovery days on arts related subjects.
