From ‘Dee-Fas’ to ‘Arts-Sok’
NADFAS SPEAKERS' DIRECTORY DAY 2017*

Westminster Hall, 22nd March  

A warm welcome to all NADFAS / Arts Society* members attending the Annual Directory Meeting.  Last year’s DD coincided with my (third) ADFAS lecturing tour of Australia, so I missed the chance to promote my New Talk Titles, my Study Days and my Tours.  So come and say 'hello' to me and my dog at the Meeting.  Collect my 'Ten Top Talks' and other material. Here on my website, under Gallery you’ll find images you can upload for publicity posters and fliers (NB click on thumbnails for full resolution).

Please revisit this site for future updates.  Meanwhile, good luck putting together your programmes for 20018, 2019, 2020 etc., etc. Here are some tours in 2017 for your members to consider:-
