New Publication


This month will see the launch of our latest publication, together with Farnham Public Art Trust.


One of our popular authors, Roy Waight, has cooperated with local Farnham personality Sue Farrow to produce a book putting Farnham's public art in its historical context. Those of you who have read Roy's work before will be conscious of the readability of his books, while imparting much information about our town. The sheer quantity of public art in the town is truly amazing, and the pair have found some pieces of art which will be surprise most people. The book is lavishly illustrated and has a useful map of the whereabouts of the art. 


F&DMS invites you to a launch, to be held at 7pm on Friday 24th June at the Farnham branch of Waterstones, where both authors will be present. The launch will be jointly hosted by F&DMS and Farnham Public Art Trust, and light refreshments will be available.


The price of the book will be £13.99. We hope very much that you will support this venture, copies of the book will be available later at our usual outlets.
