Aidan enjoyed meeting the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire at Chatsworth. It was a lovely meeting hearing about the renaissance taking place at Chatsworth, learning how the Duke is transforming the house as he repairs and renovates the building. He also had some great advice on how to put an event together, as the family get ready for the new “House Style” exhibition coming up. Inspirational!

Chatsworth is the seat of the Duke of Devonshire and has been home to the Cavendish family since 1549. Listed many times as one of the UK’s favourite country homes, Chatsworth contains a wealth of artefacts including Old Master drawings, paintings, furniture, and sculptures. The Masterplan of restorations has been underway since 2005 with the fourth and final phase to be completed in November. This phase includes the east facade of the house where the stone walls and roofs are being cleaned and replaced, as needed. Come November when the restoration project concludes, the entire house will then be returned to its full glory, and what a sight it will be!
