Take your seats and enjoy a summer celebration of music, art, opera and literature at the Buxton International Festival.
As well as bottling up water, the spa town of Buxton is also home to a three-week event that aims to show off the best of Britain’s culture.
Among the highlights are fully staged opera performances produced by major composers, some of which are put on especially for the festival itself or haven’t been seen live for years. If you want to see a rarity (or maybe a new classic), make sure you book in advance!
Besides opera, you can listen to classical music and take part in talks from well-known speakers on the subject of literature, art and politics.
Then there’s the venue: Buxton Opera House was designed by famous theatrical architect Frank Matcham, and this intimate Edwardian building brings a grand helping of visual beauty to the event, welcoming opera fans and newcomers alike.
This year’s Buxton International Festival takes place between 6-22 July, and tickets for all events on the programme are available for purchase now.
