Our Supporters

A message from our patron,
The Duke of Devonshire

"Chatsworth aims to be a significant contributor to the social wellbeing of our community and the communities around us, enhancing the lives of those that live around the estate and delighting those that visit these inspiring places. I am honoured to act as patron to the Chatsworth Players who are providing a wonderful creative outlet for local people, and entertainment for guests in our Theatre.”

The Chatsworth Players are a mix of local amateurs and former professionals who come together a few times a year to entertain people in the gorgeous setting of Chatsworth House. We could not do that without the help and support of our local community. Businesses and individuals contribute financially and in-kind to help make our productions a success - and we are very grateful for their support. You can read a bit more about our friends below.
