Buxton Opera House

Built in 1903, Buxton Opera House is one of Britain’s leading receiving theatres, presenting around 450 performances each year including dance, concerts, musicals, drama, comedy, pantomime and opera. The theatre is also home to the prestigious Buxton Festival and is the new home of the Big Session 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 situated alongside an Arts Centre within the Pavilion Gardens.
