Great fireworks need great surroundings and where better than against the backdrop of a historic palace? In an occasion that would be sure to impress its dynasty of regal occupants, Chatsworth plays host to a night of live music, dancing and circus performers as well as a traditional bonfire and firework display. Set in its 105-acre garden, this is a family friendly event not to be missed.

Poets Lemn Sissay, Luke Wright and Hollie McNish, celebrity chef Nigella Lawson and broadcasters Jenni Murray, Dolly Alderton and John Simpson top the bill alongside a plethora of novelists, musicians and performers fresh from Edinburgh Fringe.

ICE SKATE AT SOMERSET HOUSE
14th November – 13th January 2019
Welcome the festive season in style with an evening on ice. Somerset house have teamed up with Fortnum and Mason to provide a highly classy affair complete with an alpine-inspired lodge for après-skate. Treat yourself to a wine and cheese fondue for two as you watch other people glide heroically around the rink. You’d be hard pushed to find a better spot.
