Festival Walk: Gossiping with the Georgians

Meet outside Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Join Anna Seward on a health-giving constitutional as she explains about her life as an acclaimed Georgian poet and unapologetically independent woman of enlightenment.

Anna was a regular visitor to The Crescent in the latter part of the 1700s and early 1800s and has many tales of Georgian life to tell – about the accommodation on offer and her fellow guests staying at The Crescent. This walk will take you past the recently reopened Buxton Crescent Hotel and across the slopes to paint a picture of then and now.
