The Arts Society Horsley

(previously called Horsley DFAS)

We are a friendly and thriving society of nearly 200 members who meet together every month (except in August and September) to learn more about the arts. We are affiliated to the national Arts Society (formerly called NADFAS), and we use lecturers from their directory of over 250 speakers who are experts in their fields. 

Our monthly lectures cover different aspects of the arts, including painting, sculpture, pottery, glass, gold, silverware, jewellery, embroidery, furniture, architecture, music, dance, theatre, film and literature.

For an annual subscription of £40 you can attend our 10 lectures a year (this includes tea/coffee served beforehand). We also provide a lunch party (with wine) following our Christmas lecture and a summer party following our July lecture. 

Other benefits include our monthly newsletter, preferential rates on our visits, access to Special Interest Mornings organised by the Area Society and a quarterly copy of The Arts Society Review, with access to their programme of lectures, visits and tours.

Our meetings are held on the morning of the second Wednesday of each month, at East Horsley Village Hall (Kingston Avenue, East Horsley, Surrey KT24 6QT). Free parking is available both outside the village hall (limited places) and in the nearby car park behind the village shops. 

The lectures begin about 10:30am and usually last between 60 and 75 minutes.
