Recognised nationally and internationally as one of the UK’s leading arts festivals, Buxton Festival is a summer celebration of the very best opera, music and literature at the heart of the beautiful Peak District.
Buxton is one of the only festivals to specialise in producing rarely-performed operas by major composers which form the core of our programme alongside a number of guest productions, all of which are presented in the outstandingly beautiful Matcham-designed Buxton Opera House.
The festival features the most promising up-and-coming, and also internationally established, artists and literary figures in a packed two-week programme with ticket sales of over 40,000.
