The 2018 Area Meeting, also now known as the Area Forum, will take place in Boxgrove Village Hall, The Street, Boxgrove, PO18 1EE,Chichester, West Sussex on Friday 5 October, 10.00 for 10.30, hosted by TAS Chichester. All Sussex Area local societies are invited to send a representative, preferably (but not essentialy) the Chairman. TAS House will be represented by a national Trustee. Area meetings can be dry events, but this year we have the opportunity to review both the national rebranding and the Jubilee celebrations. In addition, the possibility of strengthening links with West Dean College, and extensions of our Young Arts projects funding to include West Sussex and East Sussex Music Services will be raised for discussion. Parking at the Village Hall is free. Agenda to be advised later.
