Through a vibrant network of local societies in the United Kingdom the The Arts Society opens up the world of arts to everyone. With monthly lectures on a broad range of topics as well as study days, and educational visits, a The Arts Society branch is not just a great way to learn - it's a fun way of making new and lasting friendships. The Arts Society has a world membership of more than 80,000. BRIDFAS - The Arts Society of Osnabrück e.V. is member  of The Arts Society  and was founded in 1997 by Lady Caroline Richards -the wife of the then British Garrison Commander in Osnabrück - as the British Decorative and Fine Art Society of Osnabrück-Münster-Herford.


Our season commences in September and ends in June. We have eight lecture evenings and normally one Study Day which is organised by our sister society in Hamburg and to which our members are very kindly invited. We have an annual excursion, usually in May or an organised tour abroad such as to the United Kingdom.

Due to the pandemia currently our lectures are hosted online using the Zoom video conferencing app.They begin promptly at  7:00pm and last approximately 1 hour.The invitation links will be send out to our members just in time. "Doors open" at 6:30pm.
