Please note: this event will now take place in The Assembly Rooms.

From Romans to royalty and hypochondriacs to holiday-makers, natural water spas have been a common feature in society since the first century.

In their heyday, Europe’s spas, including Buxton, were the main meeting places for aristocracy, politicians and cultural elites. They were the centres of political and diplomatic intrigue, and were fertile sources of artistic, literary and musical inspiration.

Our musical accompaniment for this event will be a short programme of operetta with a spa connection.

Includes a cup of tea.
