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). The lectures begin at 10:30am (usually lasting between 60 and 75 minutes), with coffee/tea and biscuits served from 9:30am.
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.
