Membership is open to all. For 10 lectures, an individual subscription is £49 (from Oct 17), joint (two people at the same address) £95, and £12 p.a. for students. The subscription year runs from 1 October to 30 September (no activities August/September). Visits and other events are charged separately. There is no waiting list.

'Temporary members' may attend at £9 voluntary contribution per lecture, or £1 for students. Just turn up and pay - no booking required.

DDFAS membership automatically confers membership of NADFAS (National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies - The Arts Society from May 2017). Members receive a glossy quarterly art magazine and a card entitling holders to free or reduced entry to many museums, galleries and places of interest. Members and their guests may also attend NADFAS study days, details of which are listed in the magazine and on our Study Days page.

The new season's programme is sent early in September. Another mailing follows in January. We encourage members to receive these by email, as postage is a considerable drain on our resources.

A reducing scale of fees operates for those who join DDFAS later in the season:

Month of

  Remaining lectures   Subscription fee
April   4   £20 single/£38 joint
May   3   £15 single/28 joint
June   2   £10/£18 + next season's fee
