w240artcomp202The Limpsfield Decorative and Fine Arts Society
(LDFAS) is concerned with the cultivation, appreciation and study of the decorative and fine arts and with the provision of assistance towards the preservation of our artistic heritage. It is a member society of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) and is affiliated to NADFAS East Surrey Area.

Lectures are presented monthly on a wide range
of topics by recognised experts in the decorative and fine arts.

Visits are arranged to places of historic, artistic and cultural interest. In many instances guides meet the group for an introductory lecture or guided tour.

Study Days are arranged from time to time, devoted to an in-depth examination of a specific topic or aspect of fine arts. The day usually comprises three lectures and lunch.

Tours of typically 3-5 days in either this country or Europe are also arranged from time to time.

Where they meet. St Peter’s Hall, Limpsfield, normally on the last Wednesday of the month, from September to June.

The Society now has its own web-site here http://limpsfieldarts.org/
No further information will be posted here.
