The new name of Richmond DFAS


We don’t have a waiting list and we would love you to become a member. Just fill in our online membership form and we’ll phone you back very quickly.

If you would like a chat please telephone Jenny Lebus, who is the Membership Secretary, on 020 8892 9696 or send a brief email to or complete our Contact Us form or just turn up at the door on a lecture evening.

We are famous for our friendly welcome to new members. That starts right from the beginning with a welcome telephone call from one of the committee, usually from Jenny. And when you arrive for your first event which will usually be a lecture, we take you under our wing and introduce you to other members. You are never left to cope on your own.

Our annual membership fees are £40 single, £75 double.

If you’d like to try us out, please pop along for a taster, no ticket needed, just turn up on the door.  We will charge you £5 for attending the lecture (except the May and November lectures which are free) but the £5 is refunded to you if you join. 

If you are an artist such as a painter or sculptor, you might prefer the similarly named Richmond Art Society whose website is at

Members may be interested in the lectures offered by our neighbouring societies, The Arts Society ChiswickThe Arts Society KingstonThe Arts Society Wimbledon and The Arts Society South West London in Putney. Members attending any of those lectures would have to pay their guest fee. And of course there are the study days, courses and other events of The Arts Society Greater London Area.
