Special Interest Days

The format of our Special Interest Days changed slightly in 2019. Instead of there being three lectures in all (two in the morning and one in the afternoon), now there are two lectures in the morning (with coffee in the break between them) and the event ends with lunch. Our Special Interest Days are held at the Riverhouse Barn, Manor Road, Walton-on-Thames KT12 2PF.

There are 2 or 3 SIDs each year.

Tickets are first available from the SIDs organiser's booking desk near the back of the hall two lecture meetings before the event; they are not available before then. The cost of the SID 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 SID 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 SIDs 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 SIDs organiser that you will be paying by online payment.

If the SID is oversubscribed, members' names will be put on a standby list, in order of application. If the SID is undersubscribed, places on the SID 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.

SIDs will be booked when it is possible to do so.

Bookings can be made at the two lecture meetings prior to a Special Interest Day. Bookings together with payment cheque made payable to The Arts Society Weybridge are accepted on a first come first served basis. Bookings are open to members and their guests. If an event is oversubscribed, names will be entered, in order of application, on a standby list if the member so wishes.
