Since 1980, the Friends have been the life and soul of Buxton Festival providing financial support and enthusiasm which underpins the festival’s continuing development.

You can join at one of four levels and membership brings a range of benefits, including priority booking and access to Opera Holidays and musical events throughout the year.

Directors Circle

As well as the four main levels of membership, we have now introduced the Directors Circle. Members of the Directors Circle play a central role in the development of Buxton Festival. Along with all of the benefits and features of Friends membership, you will have the opportunity to engage with Artistic and Executive Directors and key members of the artistic teams as well as receiving invitations to special events throughout the year.

For more information on the Directors Circle, please contact Joanne Williams, the Festival’s Development Director –
