Goring on Thames Decorative & Fine Arts Society




The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS) was founded in 1968 and is a leading Arts Charity. It works to advance education in decorative and fine arts as well as promoting the conservation of our artistic heritage. There are over 90,000 members in 360 societies mainly in the UK but also overseas.

GADFAS became a member society at the beginning of 1987 and is a registered charity. GADFAS has nine lectures a year which are held at Goring Village Hall on the fourth Wednesday of the month. We have a morning session which begins at 11.00am and an afternoon session which begins at 2.30pm. The doors open an hour beforehand to enable members to meet friends, make bookings for future events and have a cup of coffee/tea before the lecture begins.

Our membership is 460 and our annual membership fee is £36.

Study Days are arranged twice a year to provide an opportunity to study subjects in more detail.

Day Visits to exhibitions and places of interest are much enjoyed by our members and are a good way to get to know new people.

This year in 2017 we are planning to visit Bouche du Rhone in May and Kent in October.

We are very proud of our Young Arts programme, our Church Recording and Heritage Volunteers.
