Membership is open to all. For 10 lectures, an individual subscription is £49, 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.

The Arts Society Dulwich membership automatically confers membership of The Arts Society (formerly the National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies). 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 The Arts Society 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. Contact membership secretary Desrae Trace at This email address is being protected from spambots.
