We are a group of people who have an interest in and enjoy the arts in general. Our Society is affiliated to The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS).
Our objective, through lectures and visits, is to broaden our knowledge and enjoyment of the decorative and visual arts. At illustrated lectures we hear experts, chosen for their knowledge, presentational skills and entertainment value, speak on a huge variety of topics: architecture, artists and designers, china, glass, painting, music, furniture, sculpture, jewellery, ...and much more, covering prehistory to modern times.
The visits programme may include country houses, exhibitions, gardens and other places of interest. For those who enjoy learning about a subject in greater depth, we have Study Days which allow the speaker more time to cover the chosen subject.
This website shows the full extent of our activities so, please take the time for a tour; perhaps we’ll see you at one of our meetings?
