Stefan Kendal Gordy and Skyler Husten Gordy, respectively the son and grandson of Motown founder Berry Gordy, have presumably never had to do a day's work in their lives. So, given unlimited leisure time and unimaginable wealth, what do you do? You party, and you party non-stop.

I woke up to a village with no bunting, so I presumed that we weren't having a street party, which was a relief. I headed off out to the shops to buy a couple of bottles of Scotch ready to settle down in front of the telly to decide which was the worst location given to a BBC correspondent.

I snuck the whisky into the boot and slunk in to the car.

The Scottish distiller Glenfiddich has been hosting an artists-in-residence programme since 2002. The artists have come from far and wide. Having turned up with an open mind at the distillery in the Highlands, they get to stay in a cottage on the estate for three months, and there they muse upon the nature of the place, its industry, its history, and make work – photographs, animations, sculpture, paintings, video installations. This exhibition is a selection of works from those residencies.

Just about the only thing that did not go to plan yesterday for Nicky Henderson was that the helicopter due to take him from Lambourn to Ffos Las was grounded by high winds. Proceedings on the track were straightforward as both the trainer's Champion Hurdle contenders, the reigning champion Binocular and upwardly mobile Oscar Whisky, came through their rehearsals without alarum or excursion.
