Free event

In partnership with Derbyshire Mind

Sound Minds is an exploration of sound and visual arts designed to help you discover the ways we can use music and art to enhance mental well-being. 

The session includes sound engagement activities designed to lift your mood and includes opportunities to connect with others in a supportive and playful musical environment. 

You’ll be encouraged to listen to nature’s wonderful sounds while exploring the garden, woods and water, such as listening for echoes, chirps, drops and breezes in the Rock Garden.

This is one in a series of wellbeing events run in partnership with Derbyshire Mind. Tickets will be available from 25 June, find out more here.

About the session

The session will take place in the garden and the Old Potting Shed. As we will spend some time taking inspiration from the garden, walking in all weather, please wear suitable footwear and clothing.

The Old Potting Shed is a step free, accessible venue but please contact education@chatsworth.org if you have any questions about your specific needs. 

Please meet at the top garden gates (near the Stables) at 9.45am. 

Wellbeing at Chatsworth in partnership with Derbyshire Mind

We are delighted to partner with Derbyshire Mind for these new Wellbeing at Chatsworth events, part of our Celebrating the Cascade fundraising campaign.

Derbyshire Mind is working in collaboration with Chatsworth’s Learning and Engagement team and offering six different events, one each month from May to October. 

Each event is set within the beauty and calm of the garden and woodland and is focused on techniques to improve wellbeing and mood. 

The public programme events for the Celebrating the Cascade have been subsidised to keep charges to a minimum.

A Celebrating the Cascade event

Our new Celebrating the Cascade wellness sessions have been designed to delight and inspire you. We invite you to enjoy the calm and beauty of nature in the garden and wider landscape. Find balance as you step away from daily routines and pause with us by still and flowing waters. We invite you to open your heart and mind to the environment and connect with our wonderful surroundings.

The Celebrating the Cascade project is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery Players, the project is working to restore the Cascade, safeguarding it for the enjoyment of future generations and enabling more people to get involved with Chatsworth.

If you would like to support this project, please make a donation to Chatsworth House Trust here.
