We are the Dulwich branch of The Arts Society, formerly NADFAS, a leading arts education charity bringing together people with a curiosity for the arts and providing world-class lecturers. The belief that the arts have the potential to enrich peoples' lives is at the heart of everything we do.
Our speakers are selected from 380+ accredited lecturers in The Arts Society's Directory, all of whom go through a rigorous process to ensure a high level of subject expertise and presentation skills.
Our monthly lectures are held at 8pm from October to July in the comfortable purpose-built lecture theatre at the Sixth Form Centre at James Allen's Girls' School (JAGS). There is no access to the Sixth Form Centre from JAGS main school on lecture nights. To get to the Sixth Form Centre and its car park, look for the recessed wrought-iron gates just beyond JAGS Prep in Green Dale, around the corner from East Dulwich Grove. Press the button mounted on the stand on the driver's side and wait for the gates to open. If someone answers - the button connects with the main school reception - say you're with The Arts Society Dulwich. Access is from 7.15pm.
Wine by the glass (£4.00 cash or card), water and nibbles (free) are available in the Sixth Form foyer before lectures.
We arrange visits to places of interest and artistic merit throughout the season - check the visits page for booking forms. Friends and family are welcome to join our visits.
The Arts Society Greater London Area offers an eclectic range of study days in Central London encouraging deeper examination of arts-related subjects. These are open to everyone and costs are very reasonable.
