Hear from the likes of Julia Peyton-Jones and Sir Roy Strong at the art event of the summer

This summer, escape the heat of the city and spend time with the great and good of the art world at stunning Chatsworth House.

The Chatsworth Festival – Art Out Loud, will celebrate its second year between 23 and 25 September. A mixture of artists, curators and writers, including Maggi Hambling, Peter Frankopan and Deyan Sudjic, will take to one of two stages to discuss everything from culture in the north of England to the art of garden design.

The Devonshire collection will also feature prominently, with the Duke of Devonshire discussing a dozen key pieces that demonstrate how the collection has grown and diversified over 450 years.
