Chatsworth House – October 2018
On Friday 12th October 2018, we hosted a Day of Special Interest at The Warwickshire Golf & Country Club, Leek Wootton, near Warwick CV35 7QT.
The speaker was Simon Seligman who has spent almost thirty years working in the arts, heritage, tourism and communication.
The subject was Chatsworth House, an historical overview of the evolution of the House and collections, and the garden. After lunch, a focus on the life and times of Deborah Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, the youngest and last surviving of the six Mitford sisters, who were prominent members of English society in the 1930s and 1940s.
