Open Lectures & Talks'Lectures are held on a Tuesday ... Afternoon lectures start at 14.30 and evening lectures at 19.00 ... Edinburgh Decorative and Fine Arts Society is the largest of NADFAS’ more than 300 affiliated societies, with 850 members in its two sessions, afternoon and evening. The capacity of the lecture theatre at the Queen Mother Conference Centre at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh sets the limit on our membership – it has been full! We have waiting lists for both sessions, and, if you wish to apply to join EDFAS, you will have to join the waiting list. Those transferring from active membership in another NADFAS affiliated society will normally receive preference in moving from the waiting list. While on the waiting list for EDFAS membership, you may still attend up to two lectures a year as a guest, and engage in our Church Recording and Heritage Volunteering activities ...'
