A Festival for the Future – 40th Anniversary Appeal


Over the past four decades, Buxton International Festival has grown into to one of the UK’s leading arts events; a cultural celebration of the very best opera, music and literature. The Festival features the most promising rising stars in the arts world, as well as prominent international singers, artists and literary figures performing in a packed summer programme of 120 events over a 17-day period to an audience of over 30,000.

To safeguard the festival’s future, we need to raise £1.5 million over the next three years

It is only with your support, that we can ensure the Festival continues to inspire audiences and attract artists from around the world. Help us as we celebrate the past 40 years and look forward to an artistically ambitious future; nurturing new talent, engaging with wider audiences and developing what we offer as a key part of the cultural regeneration of Buxton.
