“I think I know Buxton as well as any tourist would, but almost all of what I heard was new to me, and I came away with a proper understanding of the history that’s shaped this unique and idiosyncratic town. It’s an utterly charming experience too.”
Richard Stamp Fringe review.

In the Music series, there’s a packed programme of concerts by renowned ensembles and soloists including piano duo Worbey & Farrell, the Prince of Wales’ official harpist Claire Jones, singers James Gilchrist, Kate Ladner and Anne Sophie Duprels, pianists Pascal and Ami Rogé, and celebrated ensembles The Sacconi Quartet and The Fibonacci Sequence. There’s also a number of concerts featuring up-and-coming talent from the Festival’s Young Artists Programme, and late-night jazz from actor John Standing, The Alex Yellowlees Hot Club Jazz Quartet and Ronnie Scott’s house band The James Pearson Trio, featuring violinist and vocalist Lizzie Ball.
