The Arts Society Kensington & Chelsea (formerly DFAS/ NADFAS) is a friendly voluntary organization which meets in the Kensington Central Library Lecture Hall at 12 Phillimore Walk, W8 7RX

Our members enjoy a wide range of lectures, included in their subscription, which are presented between October and July.

Visits to places of interest are arranged both in London and further afield.

In addition, our members are involved in a wide range of Heritage Volunteer work which is rewarding, interesting and fun.

Please explore further for more details on the above.

We welcome new members throughout the year. Should you wish to come to a lecture before joining to see if this is for you, we ask for a small donation of £5.00 to be made at the door.  We look forward to meeting you.


The Arts Society Kensington & Chelsea  (formerly DFAS /NADFAS) was founded in 1973 by Pam Boas and  every November we hold The Pam Boas lecture in her  memory. We are an independent registered charity. 

We are affiliated to The Arts Society (formerly NADFAS) which is also a charity based organisation. There are many affiliated societies in all parts of the UK and Europe.

The Arts Society Kensington & Chelsea has a twinning arrangement with The Arts Society in Sydney and Cairns, Australia.
