Nadfas has announced its new name and new look...have a look at all the information on www.nadfas.org.uk/branding 

Many of you have expressed the view that "Nadfas" does not convey ALL that we are about...lots of members have been consulted over the last months and the Trustees have agreed the way forward

The Nadfas AGM, (which will be in Birmingham this year...look at the Nadfas web-site www.nadfas.org.uk or the Review for more info) will have presentations on how it will all affect all members and there will be a gradual roll-out of teh new name, logo and colours.

So a new look for us in our 50th year in 2018

 

Are you interested in learning about the arts and art history?

Then NADFAS may be for you.

You may already be a member and want to know more - this website is for you too.

What is NADFAS?

NADFAS promotes and helps to preserve the arts through lectures, events, study days, visits and tours, at National, Area and Society level. NADFAS includes voluntary activities helping to maintain historic buildings, recording churches and their contents, and developing the arts for the young.

The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) was launched in 1968 by Patricia Fay with 11 societies and has expanded to over 360 societies in the UK with 90,000 members, 10 societies in Europe, and 7 in New Zealand. We have a sister organisation in Australia with 35 or more societies.

If you are unable to join a Society, do think of becoming an Affiliate Member; it means that you receive a magazine 4 times a year, and you can find out about events at a National level which are open to non members, and about Societies in all parts of the country.

You can visit the NADFAS website on www.nadfas.org.uk

London Area

We are one of the 19 areas of the UK NADFAS and comprise 25 Societies all of whom have wide ranging programmes of lectures, study courses, visits, and opportunities to volunteer further. If you would like to attend a Society meeting with a view to becoming a member, information on the location and meeting arrangements is on this website.

Other parts of the website have information on the activities of the London Area - Area courses; volunteering opportunities; our donations and grant giving policy; and news on recent events.

Enjoy browsing our website, and we hope you will enjoy what NADFAS, and the London area in particular, has to offer.
