The Arts Society de la Frontera is a European member society of The Arts Society, a UK non-profit organisation with over 340 member societies worldwide founded in 1968 by Patricia Fay.

In 2017 leading arts education charity, the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) revealed plans of a new visual identity – and new name – to its membership and it was announced, that after the AGM in May 2017, The Arts Society will replace NADFAS as their new trading name.

Originally started in 2005 to meet the needs of those living on, and visiting, the western end of the Costa del Sol, The Arts Society de la Frontera is one of the largest societies of The Arts Society in Spain and mainland Europe. Based close to Sotogrande, its main catchment area is from Marbella along the coast to La Linea and inland to Casares, Gaucin, and Jimena de la Frontera. Lectures are held in the exclusive San Roque Golf & Country Club.

The Arts Society de la Frontera is a vibrant and sociable society, holding lectures on a broad range of topics on the third Wednesday of the month between October and May, given by world class lecturers that have been chosen from a list of The Arts Society accredited UK based speakers who, in turn, have undergone a rigorous selection process.

Members and visitors can enjoy a high standard of cultural lectures, trips and events whilst meeting and mixing with like-minded people. The social element is a particularly important part of the society and as Patricia Fay famously said: “Above all, NADFAS must be fun”.
