First phase repairs and refurbishment of Buxton’s Grade-II listed Pump Room are now complete – and this unique space will host a programme of events starting this autumn which will bring the town’s story to life.
External repairs and extensive work to the decorative internal plaster work and marble cladding have been undertaken by contractors Manchester and Cheshire Construction Company. The contract has also provided basic facilities in the building allowing it to be used for public access.
Stage two of the refurbishment will start next year and the finished space will feature semi-permanent exhibitions, art installations and trails as well as being the starting point for tours and an area in which to enjoy refreshments. In the meantime, the Pump Room will play host to the imaginative and theatrical events that will bring the story of Buxton to life. Events planned for the coming months includes talks, musical events, schools projects and arts projects – to name just a few!
