Horsley Decorative and Fine Arts Society
Horsley Decorative and Fine Arts Society (Horsley DFAS) was founded in 1993. It is a member of NADFAS (National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies).
We offer an exciting programme of lectures on painting, sculpture, pottery and glass, gold and silverware, jewellery, furniture, architecture, literature and music, as well as visits to places of cultural interest.
We meet the second Wednesday of each month, (excluding August and September) in East Horsley Village Hall (Kingston Avenue, East Horsley, Surrey KT24 6QT – tel. number of the Hall is 01483 285019). The lectures begin at 10:30am (usually lasting between 60 and 75 minutes), with coffee/tea and biscuits served from 9:45am.
Our membership already numbers around 220, but we do have vacancies for new members. If you would like to join us then please click the JOIN button and fill in your contact details, and Alma, our Membership Secretary, will get back to you. Or just come along and give us a try - tickets are £5 at the door. The annual subscription is only £38, which means that, if you join us as a member, each lecture, including tea/coffee and biscuits, only costs £3.80! We will make you very welcome - and you will enjoy the company of other members, as well as learn something new about the arts!
Being a member also means you get priority and preferential rates on our outings, as well as being able to join us for our two social events each year, free of charge - one is held after the Christmas lecture (a light lunch with wine) and the second one is held after our July lecture (this year it's prosecco and pizza!). In addition, if interested, you may wish to play an active part in heritage preservation and in encouraging appreciation of the arts among young people.
