Our annual membership fee is £42, and this fee covers our season which runs from September to June. There is a reduced fee of £27 for anyone wishing to join after December. Subscriptions are renewable in June each year, ready for the new season.

Membership of Orwell DFAS includes the following:

  • A programme of nine lectures and the opportunity to attend Study Days and Visits. These are charged separately.
  • An Arts Society membership card which gives concessions at participating art venues.
  • The Arts Society Magazine, produced quarterly, which covers Fine Arts topics and which will be sent by post to you.
  • The opportunity to attend a range of national and regional events and courses which are open to all members of The Arts Society.

Guests and visitors are very welcome, however, the capacity of our venue may compel us, on occasion, to limit these numbers as our members must always take precedence. Guests are asked to ring the Membership Secretary on 01394 823807 and leave a voice mail to tell us which lecture they would like to attend.  They will then be advised if pre-payment of the entry donation is required for that specific Lecture.  We normally ask for a £6 donation per lecture, payable at the door and guests/visitors are limited to three visits in any one year.
