Welcome to Beaconsfield D&FAS

We are a lively group whose aims are to promote knowledge, and appreciation of decorative and fine arts through lectures, study groups, and guided visits to private houses, exhibitions and museums.  The society has an active Church Recorders group who meet once a month.  New volunteers are always needed.  For Young Arts, the society funds local projects to encourage creative activities in young people. In 2015/2016, Beaconsfield D&FAS is funding a project at The Holtspur School.  More details of the societies volunteering activities can be found on the Volunteering. tab.

‚ÄčWe are affiliated to NADFAS, with all its benefits of access to study days, foreign travel and expert lectures in all fields.

Our lectures are held at the very comfortable Fitzwilliams Centre behind St Marys Church in Beaconsfield Old Town on the first Thursday of each month, except in January, August, and September.  We have two sessions, a morning group which meets at 10.30, and an afternoon group which meets at 13.45 but we hope you can come earlier and join us for coffee beforehand to meet fellow members.  We are pleased to hear from anyone interested in joining us.

2015 is the societies 30th anniversary.  We will be celebrating this with a visit to Stowe House and Gardens with lunch in the music room at Stowe House in the summer of 2016.

If you have any news, and views that you would like to share with other members, please send us an email (use the Contact Us link), We look forward to hearing from you.

Margaret Skinner, Chairwoman
