Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, The Chatsworth Festival – Art Out Loud returns from 23–25 September with three days of talks by artists, curators and writers.


CHATSWORTH HOUSE

The festival features speakers who all have a connection with the art world and this year’s line-up includes artist Edmund de Waal, Whitworth Art Gallery Director Maria Balshaw, garden designer Dan Pearson, historian Dr Peter Frankopan and Co-Director of the Serpentine Gallery Julia Peyton-Jones, whose talk is being sponsored by Sotheby’s.

The Duke of Devonshire, who is hosting the event at Chatsworth, will also be speaking and guests will have the opportunity to explore the 105-acre garden including Sotheby’s Beyond Limits exhibition of monumental sculpture.

There will also be a range of street style food as well as the opportunity to book lunch and afternoon tea in one of the restaurants in the Stables.
