Who we are


We anticipate that the May and June lectures will be online using Zoom. Depending on Covid restrictions, we hope to be back at Landau Forte College in October after the summer break. Updates will be provided nearer the time. Online lectures take place at the normal time of 7.15 pm, and members will be sent a link to join the audience for each lecture by email.

Guests are welcome to attend Zoom lectures at a cost of £5 per person.  If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please contact Patrick Green (pgreen530@googlemail.com) and you will be sent the link.

The Arts Society Derby is a group of more than 200 people from the Derby area who enjoy the arts, want to find out more about them, and want to meet other people with the same interests. You don’t have to be an expert to join us –whatever your background and level of knowledge, our activities will give you opportunities to explore the arts and to enjoy them more. Through our lectures, trips and events you can learn about all aspects of the arts, from early times to the present day – not only the visual arts such as painting, sculpture, architecture and decorative arts, but also music, literature and other non-visual arts. You can discover more about what we do on the following pages. We hope to hear from you and to see you at one of our lectures.

You will be very welcome!
