Garden Museum Literary Festival 2022: Line-up and extra tickets!

June 23rd 2022

The Garden Museum is delighted to announce that the annual Garden Museum Literary Festival 2022 will be held at Chatsworth, generously hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and Lord and Lady Burlington.

This boutique event has previously visited; Helmingham Hall (2021), Houghton Hall (2019), Boughton House (2017), Hatfield House (2015) and Petworth House (2014).

Each venue provides a space over one weekend in summer - to 'celebrate the best in garden writing' and to 'share what inspires us in gardens.'
