Visits 2020

There are 3-4 visits per year which are sometimes related to one of the topics in the lecture programme.

Tickets are first available from the Visits organiser's booking desk near the back of the hall on two lecture meetings before the event; they are not available before then. The cost of the visit will be given when the tickets are first available for sale. Members may apply for up to two tickets each (for members only unless otherwise advised). Payment may be made:

a) by cheque made payable to The Arts Society Weybridge for the full amount of the Visit or
b) by online payment direct to The Arts Society Weybridge bank account. This is the same bank account to which annual TASW membership payments can be made. Please ask the Visits organiser for our bank details. Our Treasurer will recognise what the payment is for from the amount being paid and the date of payment. When buying the ticket, please tell the Visits organiser that you will be paying by online payment.

If the Visit is oversubscribed, members' names will be put on a standby list, in order of application. If the Visit is undersubscribed, places on the Visit may be offered to persons on our waiting list, or to spouses/partners of members, or members of other TAS Societies.

If you have to cancel your booking, please let the organiser know immediately so that if possible a replacement can be found from those on the standby list. Please do not arrange your own replacement. If your place is filled, a refund will be made, less a £5 cancellation fee, after the event has taken place. If your place cannot be filled, no refund will be made.

Parking on visits days

Burhill Golf Club has very kindly agreed to our members parking their cars for the day on the three days this year when we have visits. Please note:
1. We are permitted to park in the walled garden Overflow Car Park only, not in the Members' Car Park (even if you are a Member). Please see plan below showing the location of the Overflow Car Park.
2. The coach pick-up and drop-off point. From the Overflow Car Park, walk through the members car park, bear right along the Club exit route and the coach will be parked a short way on the left, just by the words "Exit to Burwood Road" on the plan below.
3. The permission is solely to park. We are not permitted to use any Club facilities, such as the bars, toilets etc, or enter the club buildings.
4. We are not allowed to put up signs directing our members to the Overflow Car Park.
5. Access to the Club is from Burwood Road. Coming from Seven Hills Road, take the second turning on the right after Whiteley Village.
6. Exit from the Club at the end of the day is shown on the plan below; this route leads to Burwood Road via Turners Lane. Do not exit the Club the way you drove in.
