Cllr Gordon Simmons (mayor), Cllr Kate Caulfield (mayoress)

Every September, organisations and volunteers across the country organise events to celebrate the country’s history and culture, and for the first-time residents can book to get a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the mayor’s parlour.

Meet the Mayor and Mayoress of Chesterfield, Councillor Gordon Simmons and Councillor Kate Caulfield, and take a tour around the Mayor’s Parlour, learning of the role of the civic office and some of the history of the borough through the artefacts on display and see the regalia associated with the office..

Learn about the civic role of the Mayor and Mayoress, the history of some of the former incumbents and about the twin towns and gifts the borough has received and the famous visitors. Pre-booking for this event is essential. The duration of the tour is 1 hour, plus time for complimentry refreshments.
