Music & Nightlife

The Buxton Festival is an annual summer festival of opera, music, and (since 2000) a literary series, held in Buxton, Derbyshire in England since it began in July 1979. The Festival has made a significant impact on the operatic culture of Britain with new productions of rarely-performed operas (such as Britten's Let's Make an Opera, Kodály's Háry János, Vivaldi's Griselda, many productions of Handel's operas, as well as many others by Cimarosa. By contrast in the early 1970s, it was best known as one of the UK's most prominent rock festivals, with most major rock bands of the day appearing, including Mott The Hoople, The Faces, Lindisfarne, Canned Heat, Chuck Berry, Edgar Broughton Band, and the Groundhogs.

Now boasting its own Fringe Festival, visitors can enjoy open air events that hosts comedy, theatre, dance, music, street performances, puppetry, film, performance art, talks and shows for children as well as other impromptu events.
