The programme of lectures is usually held at the Watts Gallery at Compton, which houses over 250 works by the famous Victorian painter and sculptor. During renovations at the gallery, lectures are held at Onslow village hall.
Lectures cover the whole range of creativity of the period - architecture, fine art, interior decoration and furnishings, decorative arts and garden design.

Annual General Meeting

The Society’s AGM is usually held at an Arts and Crafts venue such as Priorsfield School, designed by CFA Voysey, or the Tilford Institute, designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.
