Please note that as from January 13th 2015 our lectures will take place in the Methodist Church, St Edmunds Church Street, Salisbury SP1 1EF
As a member society of the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS), our aim is to open up the world of the arts to our members in a variety of ways.
We have inspiring monthly lectures given by some of the country's top experts, together with days of special interest, educational visits and cultural holidays. NADFAS is a great way to learn, have fun and make new and lasting friendships.
You can also become involved in worthwhile conservation volunteering projects in churches, museums, castles and stately homes, so join us and discover all that the Society has to offer.
We are also part of NADFAS Wessex Area with the added possibility of joint activity between local societies.
Lectures are monthly, except July and August, in the Methodist Church, Salisbury, at 11.00am. Arriving in good time to have a cup of coffee gives members an opportunity to meet each other and to form friendships.
Three or four visits a year are arranged to historic houses, museums and other places of interest in Britain, which often link in with the lecture topics. Overseas visits are also arranged most years.
Special Interest Days
Special Interest Days are designed to look at a subject in greater depth. For example, a most successful Study Day was held in February 2014 on "Gold: the story of Britain and gold".
A Group is now working at St John the Baptist Church in Bishopstone, which is an old and fascinating church.
A small group has been working in the Rifles Museum, Salisbury for nearly ten years. Their first project was to make three banners depicting the badges of the former regiments and these now hang in the entrance hall of the museum.
Every year Sarum DFAS aims to support local students by sponsoring a project within the Salisbury area. This can be in the form of paying for an instructor on a particular subject within a school or sponsoring students directly for a project.
