Horsley Decorative and Fine Arts Society

Horsley Decorative and Fine Arts Society (Horsley DFAS) is a member of NADFAS (National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies) which was founded in 1968 to foster knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the arts. There are 330 such societies, with over 90,000 members in the UK and overseas.

Our Horsley society was founded in 1993, and since then we have been offering an exciting programme of lectures and local interest outings 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 on the morning of 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).

Please come along and give us a try. We will make you very welcome, and do hope you will enjoy yourself and the company of other members, as well as learn something new about the arts!

Our membership already numbers around 230, 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.

The current annual subscription is £38.

You can also attend any of our lectures as a ‘visitor’ (at a cost of £5 per lecture). In which case you can just turn up on the day, or you can book a place by clicking here and sending us a message.

Being a member also means you get priority for places at our special interest events and outings, as well as attending our social events. 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.

Royal Festival Hall on Tuesday 7 February 2017

The Royal Philarmonic Orchestra will be joined by Principal Guest Conductor and legendary violinist, Pinchas Zuckerman, who will be both conductor and soloist in this all Beethoven programme, including the exceptional Symphony no.7, as featured in the King’s Speech, the Egmont Overture, and the exquisite Violin Concerto, all portraying Beethoven at his most stirring and inspirational. The concert starts at 7.30pm, and the coach will leave KGV car park at 5pm, returning at 10pm, so we hope to be back at the car park by about 11:30pm Rhona has negotiated a generous reduction in ticket price, including a free concert programme, and so the cost, including the coach, is only £40, based on minimum ticket sales of 30 and a maximum of 50. Tickets will first go on sale at the November lecture.
