As most of you will be aware, we have been seeking a new venue for our lectures and Days of Special Interest but one which would encourage you all to remain as members.

We are, therefore, delighted to announce that the move will be to The Gateway Christian Centre, Monk Street, Abergavenny NP7 5ND. The Centre is just a short distance from St Mary’s Church on Monk Street and, as such, many of you will still choose to park in the main car park.

To comply with Health and Safety Regulations, all memebers and guests are asked to sign in on arrival and remain in the building until after the lecture.

The venue was once a cinema and, latterly, has been fully refurbished to a high standard for the Gateway Church. The venue holds 200 people in a very large upstairs room. They have a stage at one end with a large white wall behind so the lecturer will be seen by all in the room. The lecture images will be projected onto the large wall making viewing much easier and, we hope, clearer. The venue has a state of the art sound system and blackouts and their facilities manager will be on hand for all our lectures. There is a foyer with toilets and a kitchen so we will still serve coffees/teas before the lecture. The venue has a newly installed lift suitable for wheelchairs and for use by others, albeit it is quite slow.

We are thrilled that we are able to move to a bigger and much better equipped venue and we hope you will join us there, along with your guests, for the new season starting in September.

All Outing trips leave from Abergavenny Bus Station & Car Park, Monmouth Road, Abergavenny.
Car parking as above.
Lectures are held promptly at 11.00 am on the second Thursday of each month (excluding August). Coffee will be available from 10.15 to 10.45 am. To avoid distrurbance at the end the of the Lecture, please pay enough parking fees to cover an over-running lecture. i.e. until 12.30pm



The Arts Society

to whom we are affiliated - provides MDFAS with its overarching structure, advice, guidance, training, insurance and - most importantly - its list of approved lecturers. Part of the membership fees is paid to The Arts Society to fund these services. We are managed by an annually elected Committee, who are always willing to hear suggestions to improve the activities of the Society.

With inspiring monthly lectures given by top experts in their fields, together with study day events, educational visits and cultural holidays, The Arts Society is a great way to learn, have fun and make new and lasting friendships.
