Chatsworth House

Chatsworth is one of Britain’s best loved historic houses and estates, offering something for everyone to enjoy, from famous works of art and the spectacular fountains in the garden to the finest shopping, food and drink and many miles of free walks. The home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire is set in the magnificent landscape of Derbyshire’s Peak District National Park and is seen in the recently released film of ‘Pride and Prejudice’.  

The Russell Partnership was commissioned to carry out a full catering and events review of the in-house catering and events operation.  

The Partnership provided an in-depth review and analysis of all the catering operations, developed a commercial benchmark financial model to demonstrate the commercial opportunity, and to assist with future investment and operational planning.  

The cost prices were evaluated, and procurement recommendations made. The events business which includes the wedding business was analysed and recommendations made to the future operating format.
