Buxton Wells Dressing
Sunday 6th July – Monday 14th July 2014
The custom of Well Dressing in Buxton started in 1840, as a thanks to the Duke of Devonshire who had piped a supply of fresh drinking water to the Higher Buxton Well on the Market Place. It was sometime later, in 1864 before the Pump Room near St Ann’s Well in the Crescent was also decorated. Apart from a break which lasted from 1912 until 1925 this traditional custom has continued to the present day.
Following last year’s sell-out with Raffles: One Heart and Mind, Act-IV returns with its latest show, sparkling with humour and new songs, about the amazing Victorian original master-chef Alexis Soyer. The new show is entitled ‘Oui Chef!’. And the run includes an exclusive evening of supper theatre in collaboration with The Old Hall Hotel, and which will be held on the French National ‘Bastille’ Day, the 14th of July.
