Welcome to the Home Page of Cranleigh
Decorative & Fine Arts Society

We are a lively and welcoming group which aims to promote the knowledge, appreciation and care of the decorative and fine arts through talks, study groups, guided tours, visits to private houses, museums, exhibitions and other places of interest to members of the Society. In addition, we are committed to promoting the arts to young people through school-based project work.

As an affiliated NADFAS Society we enjoy all the benefits of a national arts group, which includes a high quality quarterly journal, access to study days, foreign travel and contact with experts across the whole spectrum of the arts.

Currently, we have vacancies for new members at both our afternoon and evening meetings. The annual membership fee is 45.00 with a one-off joining fee of 10. Guests and members of the public are welcome at our talks and attendance is free. However, a gift by way of a voluntary donation to the Society as a contribution towards its operating costs would be appreciated. There is a regular newsletter to keep members up-to-date with information.

Cranleigh Arts Centre

We meet in the superb auditorium of the Cranleigh Arts Centre with its raked seating and state of the art sound and projection systems. Click on Venue in the side panel for more information.

Talks are given regularly on the fourth Wednesday of each month except in August and December. We have two identical meetings on the same day which gives members welcome flexibility should they be unable to attend their usual session. Afternoon meetings begin at 2.00pm and evening meetings at 7.30pm.

In addition to our monthly talks, we arrange day visits to places of interest. These are generally by coach leaving from Stocklund Square. These are very popular with our members and are booked on a first come first served basis. We also offer occasional group holidays on an arts-related theme, usually organised through specialist tour operators (see Programme).
