Your ultimate guide to things to do on the Haddon Estate this summer.
We’ve already had a taste of summer in the Peak District and are really looking forward to what else the season brings. From musical recitals to games in the garden, estate adventures to mechanical sculptures, you can be sure that our upcoming events schedule will cater for a vast range of interests.
Please note that Haddon Hall will be closed to the public on the 22nd, 23rd, 24th and 25th August this year. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Shadows and Whispers – An Exhibition by Artist, Nik Ramage
Between 1st August and 30th September, ingenious sculptures will be scattered across the halls of Haddon in this unique exhibition from artist Nik Ramage. Visitors will get the opportunity to interact with the mechanical creations, which were inspired by the shadows and whispers of Haddon Hall’s rich history.
You can find out more about the exhibition in this interview with Nik, and share your experience by using #ShadowsAndWhispers and #HaddonHall on social media.
This two day festival will provide fun for all the family, with a whole host of exciting activities taking place in the hall and gardens. Over the August bank holiday weekend, children and adults alike can enjoy music, face-painting, archery, crafts, storytelling and much more at our family fete, with free entry for children with a paying adult.

We adore hearing the sound of music floating through the halls of Haddon, and are thrilled to be hosting a series of musical recitals throughout the summer.
“It’s such a pleasure to hear music being performed around Haddon’s grounds. We hope these occasional performances with some of the region’s best musicians will bring much enjoyment to visitors this year and set Haddon on the map for music.” – Lady Edward
Performances are included in the general admission price and will take place outside in the courtyards and gardens of Haddon if the weather is fine, or from within the incredible setting of the Long Gallery if rain is forecast. Recitals coming up during the summer include:
- Richard Haslam (Classical Guitar) – Sunday 6th and 13th August
- Laura-Rose Gee (Harpist) – Sunday 27th and Monday 28th August
- Bell Ringers in the Chapel – Saturday 9th September
However you like to spend your time, we are confident that you’ll find something for everyone at Haddon Hall this summer. We look forward to welcoming you over the next few months.
