Haslemere DFAS was founded in 1971. 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 special interest days and outings to places of historical and artistic interest. Occasional trips abroad are also organised.

2016 will start with a comparison between the lifestyles in medieval Paris and London, the theme of style and splendour cropping up again in a different guise later in the year on the Riviera. Photography as fine art will be debated. Artists in the lime light will include Rogier Van Der Weyden (the Master), Joaquin Sorolla (Painter of Sunlight) and Thomas Heatherwick (the Leonardo da Vinci of our times according to Sir Terence Conran). The highs and lows of running a museum and the saving of Zeugma from the waters of the Euphrates are two themes that further illustrate the variety of topics to be covered in 2016. Travel around the world a little more at a Study Day on the Edo Period in Japan and take a coach ride to London to visit Two Temple Place. For information about all these events and more, visit the programme pages.
