Buxton International Festival

Promenading with Mr Frank Matcham

Festival Walk, 3:30pm Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

The Victorian and early Edwardian visitors to Buxton required more than the Buxton water to enliven their spirits.

The Pavilion Gardens and the Buxton Opera House were just the tonic needed. The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of Frank Matcham, the architect responsible for the Buxton Opera House and this walk and talk invites you to hear more of the history of this prince of playhouse architects and his involvement with the then Buxton Gardens Company.
