Parking at Whiteley Village

Spaces have been allocated at the Rugby Club car park. Signs will direct you and there should be some signs to direct pedestrians to the hall.

There will be a mini bus, which will do two runs to the hall, 09.50 hrs. and 10.05 hrs., and two runs back to the car park after the lecture.


The bus seats twelve passengers each run.

There will be limited parking in
South Avenue near the hall for those who cannot manage the walk. This area will be marked by cones.  

The cones indicate where to park!


This is in addition to The Sanctuary car park area for those who need to be nearer the hall. (Car parking pass needed and available on request).

Please note that only members with a 
blue parking badge will be allowed to park next to the hall.

For a map of the parking areas please see the Venues page of this website.

The Arts Society Weybridge


Weybridge Decorative & Fine Arts Society was founded in 2000. We are affiliated to The Arts Society formerly known as the National Association for Decorative & Fine Arts. In October 2017, following the lead of The Arts Society, we changed our name to The Arts Society Weybridge.

The Arts Society comprises Member Societies throughout the country whose aim is to increase enjoyment and knowledge of the arts and to stimulate interest in the preservation of our cultural heritage. The first Society was founded in Buckinghamshire in 1965 by the late Patricia Fay OBE and there are now over 320 societies with a membership of over 88,000. We have 300 members.

Our primary activity is a programme of lectures with a guest speaker. These talks take place at Whiteley Village Hall (pictured above), Octagon Road, off Burwood Road, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey KT12 4EH, at 10.30 am on the second Wednesday of each month (except July).

We also arrange visits to local places of interest, and trips abroad.

At our October 2017 AGM, our members voted unanimously to change our name from Weybridge Decorative & Fine Arts Society to The Arts Society Weybridge. This follows the recommendation of The Arts Society (formerly the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies) and its rebranding.

There are also special interest days which are usually held at the Riverhouse Barn (pictured right) in Walton-on-Thames.

The Arts Society Weybridge supports the Young Arts in Weybridge and local area by contributing to an arts activity for young people between the ages of 8 and 18.

We are in need of more help for our Audio Visual team, especially someone knowledgable in sound equipment.
