A PACKED programme of Diamond Jubilee celebrations is planned at country houses, gardens and estates in Derbyshire next month.
Hardwick Hall, in the Peak District, is inviting visitors to tuck into a special lunch on Sunday, June 3, to mark the Queen’s 60-year-long reign. The hall has hosted royal visits for centuries, including Charles I in 1619 and a young Princess Victoria in 1832.
Events are also planned at the Longshaw Estate near Sheffield.
