Pavilion Arts Centre, Buxton Events

Buxton Opera House & Pavilion Arts Centre is one of Britain's leading receiving theatres, presenting over 500 performances each year including dance, comedy, children's shows, drama, musical concerts, pantomime and opera as well as a lively Fringe Theatre and Community and Education Programme. The theatre is also home to the nationally renowned Buxton Festival. Lovingly restored to its former glory in 2001, Buxton Opera House is an exquisitely beautiful Edwardian theatre and one of the country's finest examples of Frank Matcham theatre design. Its sister theatre Pavilion Arts Centre was opening in September 2010, offering a second venue for the year round programme of events and a home to the theatre's Young Company of performers.
