The Pavilion Arts Centre is Buxton’s second theatre venue and it is located in the Pavilion Gardens behind the Opera House.

The Pavilion Arts Centre has two spaces, a 360-seat Main Room and 93-seat Studio Theatre. The Main Room has a mixed programme of stand-up comedy including the Buxton Buzz Comedy Club and music events including Coffee Concerts, lunchtime jazz and the Big Session Music Festival. This venue is also used for performances by the Buxton Festival, the Buxton Festival Fringe and Live Streaming events from prestigious theatres and opera companies around the country. It has it’s own bar and box office which is open for an hour before each performance.

The Studio Theatre houses the programme of fringe, independent small-scale drama and film. There is no box office for the studio, so book your tickets in advance or bring cash to pay on the door.
