Welcome to the Home Page of The Arts Society Chiswick, formerly the Chiswick Decorative & Fine Arts Society (ChDFAS). You can read about our recent rebrand and change of name in the News section of our website.

Since the launch of our branch in 2015, we have quickly grown to over 250 members. We are proud to be part of the vibrant cultural scene in Chiswick, but also in Hammersmith where we meet and other local neighbourhoods such as Shepherd’s Bush.

The Arts Society’s core belief is that the arts are essential to enriching people’s lives. For the past 50 years, it has been committed to opening the world of the arts for everyone, connecting people to the arts and to each other. The social aspect of membership is intrinsic in everything that we do.

Here in our part of West London, we provide opportunities for members to get together to enjoy all aspects of the arts: at monthly lectures, on the 2nd Thursday of every month (except August and December); on walking tours, visits and events; in hands-on workshops and Special Interest Days; and even on trips away. Our location means that we are lucky to be able to enjoy London and all it has to offer, but we explore further afield as well. Our recent UK trip was a 5-day visit to Liverpool and we are planning a cultural trip abroad in 2018.

We also provide interesting opportunities to volunteer in a wide variety of conservation projects or in other arts-related work within the local community.

Do please explore our website to find out more about who we are and what we do and how you can join us.

Members may be interested in lectures offered by our neighbouring societies, The Arts Society Ealing and The Arts Society Richmond. Members attending other societies' lectures would have to pay their guest fee. In addition there are the study days, courses and other events offered by The Arts Society Greater London Area.
