About The Arts Society

The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS, the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies) was founded in 1968 and is an educational organisation with charitable status, consisting of member societies throughout the United Kingdom, mainland Europe and Australia. The Arts Society Greenwich is part of the Greater London Area.

Each autonomous society organises a programme of illustrated monthly lectures, study days, visits to art galleries, museums, cathedrals and country houses that are related to the decorative and fine arts. All have the same aims, the knowledge, and stimulation of interest and care of the Arts.

The success of The Arts Society is based on the high quality of the monthly lectures chosen from the National Directory of Lecturers complemented by additional speakers of commensurate status and experience.
