The Buxton Crescent Experience
Coming soon in 2019!
In September 2018, Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust announced a major partnership agreement with Nestlé Waters UK, producers of Buxton Natural Mineral Water, which will see them work together on the development of the innovative visitor experience, due to open in the Crescent in 2019. Other partners include the Heritage Lottery Fund, Derbyshire County Council, High Peak Borough Council, D2N2 and an exciting partnership with the University of Derby.
Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust
The Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust was launched in a celebratory event in the recently-restored Grade 2 Victorian Pump Room on Tuesday 20th June 2017 with the Trust’s Patron, the Duke of Devonshire.
It is led by Derbyshire-born, tourism expert and Visit England’s former Chief Executive, James Berresford. The Trust was established to: preserve the stunning Crescent and surrounding spa buildings for future generations; create an inspiring visitor experience in The Pump Room and suite of rooms in The Crescent; manage the visitor attractions focusing on the town’s unique spa heritage; and develop a year-round programme of events in the Assembly Room. The Visitor Experience and year round programme of events in the Assembly Rooms will allow the community and visitors to ‘step’ into the history of the Crescent and Pump Rooms and learn about the fascinating stories of our spa heritage, the Crescent and its restoration, the town and the characters that made it all happen. The Experience will complement Buxton’s and the area’s other attractions.
As a charitable organisation, The Trust received start-up and development funding from The Heritage Lottery Fund, High Peak Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council, but does not receive regular funding.
Trustees represent the varied aspects of the scheme including heritage and architecture, tourism and cultural services, skills and training and local business and are people who are passionate about the Crescent, its heritage and the town.
The Friends of Buxton Crescent & Thermal Spa support the Trust and will help deliver their aims. Benefits of membership include invitations to events in The Pump Room, an opportunity to get involved with the project and events and discounts and offers for the Visitor Experience.
