Because of Covid, our lectures this season will be delivered via Zoom. We hope to return to live lectures from October 2021.

We are the Dulwich branch of The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS), a leading arts education charity that brings together people with a shared curiosity for the arts, providing access to world-class lecturers sharing their specialist knowledge. The belief that the arts have the potential to enrich peoples' lives is at the heart of everything we do. Our lectures are normally held in a comfortable purpose-built lecture theatre with its own parking, at 8pm the second Thursday of the month. There is no waiting list and membership is open to everyone. 

We encourage the pleasure of learning through our programme of evening lectures as well as visits to places of artistic merit in and around London. The Arts Society's Greater London Area offers a wide-ranging programme of study days providing opportunities for deeper examination of arts-related subjects.
