Welcome to Beaconsfield DFAS. We are a lively group which aims to promote knowledge, appreciation, and care of decorative and fine arts through lectures, study groups, and guided visits to private houses, exhibitions and museums. We are affiliated to NADFAS, with all its benefits of access to study days, foreign travel and expert lectures in all fields.

At the moment the Beaconsfield DFAS society is full, but there is only a short waiting list, and we are pleased to hear from anyone interested in joining. Membership is £35 plus a joining fee of £10. Guests are welcome to lectures from February onwards, if space is available, for a donation of £10 - £5 if on the waiting list or attending a taster lecture.

We meet at the very comfortable Fitzwilliam Centre behind St Marys Church in Beaconsfield Old Town. Lectures are held on the first Thursday of each month, except in January, August, and September. Our guest speakers present their lecture at 10.30 to our morning group, then again at 13.45 to our afternoon group - but we hope you can come earlier and join us for coffee beforehand to meet fellow members.

Do email us your news, views and photographs (use the Contact Us link), and we will publish them on the News page. We look forward to hearing from you.

(Graham Davison, Chairman)
