Haslemere DFAS was founded in 1971 and after 44 years the Society is still going strong, with about 260 members. As a charity we aim to be closely involved in the local community, in particular focusing on inspiring children with a love of the arts and helping to conserve our heritage through volunteer work and church recording.
Every year we have a packed programme of events and monthly lectures, including a series of study days and outings to places of historical and artistic interest. Occasional trips abroad are also organised – the destination this year will be the Netherlands.


The year starts with the Painted Monasteries of Bulgaria and ends with the history of Stained Glass seen through the Christmas Story. With Lectures on such diverse subjects as the Brazilian Roberto Burle Marx, Fabergé's eggs and great artistic feuds, Study Days on your suggestionsHeraldry, Victorian jewellery and Nefertiti, and Outings including the new Goya Exhibition at the National Gallery and an evening with the Purcell Singers at Westminster Abbey, 2015 promises to be an entertaining and informative year.

If you have any suggestions for lectures, outings or study days, please click on the SUGGESTION BOX
to send an email. Note that all events are booked a year in advance.
