The Chatsworth Lions are copies of Canova's originals on the tomb of Pope Clement XIII (1693-1769) in St Peter's in the Vatican.

A short film for anyone who hasn't made it to Chatsworth this festive season, or would like to experience some of the Nutcracker scenes again.
Thank-you so much to everyone who has followed our Advent Story. Clara's adventures in the Land of Sweets have come to an end, but you can still visit us (and the ballerina) from December 27 - January 3 (excluding January 1).
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas, from everyone here at Chatsworth.

Day 22 of the Chatsworth Nutcracker Advent Story.
