New Web Site - The Arts Society Falmouth

Please go to our new web site theartssocietyfalmouth.org

The society was previously know as the Falmouth DFAS. Following on from an EGM meeting we officially changed our name to The Arts Society Falmouth as of the June 2018  AGM.

This web site will remain operational for a short period but members and those interested, should visit our new site www.theartssocietyfalmouth.org

Please note that this is the historical web site for the Society. All the content and new information can be found on our new web site. Please see the message box.

Experts have shared their knowledge on subjects as diverse as ‘The Golden Tang Dynasty’, ‘Railway Architecture’, ‘Dissolution of the Abbeys’, ‘The 12 Great Livery Companies of London’ and the ‘Monasteries of Bulgaria’.

The only way to really understand the richness of the material covered is to look at our Lecture Programme (both for this and previous years) or come along as a guest and try us out.


Our monthly illustrated lectures explore a given subject and last approximately 1 hour. Lecturers are selected from the NADFAS directory (which lists over 3000 talks, delivered by 280 different lecturers) and are chosen for their expert knowledge and for their ability to present their subject in an informal and entertaining way.

Special Interest Days

Members have the option to take part in Special Interest Days (SID), previously referred to as Study Days. These give the lecturer the opportunity to explore a subject in more depth with typically 3 lectures spread over the day. SIDs are organised by both by the Falmouth Society and jointly with the South West Area of NADFAS.


Our visits often give members an opportunity to visit places of interest that are not always accessible to the public.
