The festival is supported through Arts Council’s National Lottery Project Grants and will feature more than 25 artists, including Ben Long, who will be giving a talk in the shadow of his eight-metre high Dog Scaffolding Sculpture, which overlooks the festival site.
Chatsworth was one of the arts and cultural organisations who joined forces with local tourism partners to create a package which took visitors on a contemporary ‘Grand Tour’ of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire’s cultural history and landscape.
