Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire’s Breakfast at Chiswick House
Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, requests the pleasure of your company for a weekend of music, dancing, food and drink, historical talks, storytelling and more in the estate at Chiswick House.
Inspired by the ‘breakfast’ or fête, held on 5th July 1800, organised by Georgiana, 5th Duchess of Devonshire as a birthday celebration for her eldest daughter, Georgiana, known as Little G, we invite you to join us for a fun day out for all the family.
‘This rural fete was what is called a public breakfast. It consisted of feasting, music, and dancing, from two o’clock till dusk’ – Morning Post and Gazeteer, July 7 1800.
