We are a voluntary organisation working to promote and preserve the arts in and around Derbyshire.
We currently attract members from both Derbyshire and Staffordshire.
Our society puts on a regular series of lectures, organises social and cultural visits and holidays as well as offering study days and other activities for our members.
We meet on the second Wednesday of the month, in Ashbourne Town Hall, from October to June. Lectures begin at 2.15pm.
The ASDV Heritage Volunteer and Church Recording schemes are a large part of our charitable activities.
We have recently sponsored an exhibition of art from Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Ashbourne, under the society's Young Arts scheme.
