Buxton Opera House


Buxton Opera House is one of Britain’s leading provincial theatres, practically bursting at the seams with around 450 performances each year including dance, comedy, children’s shows, drama, music, pantomime, opera and even shows on ice!  As well as a lively Fringe Theatre and Community and Education Programme, Buxton Opera House is also home to the prestigious Buxton International Festival.

First opened on 1st June 1903 and lovingly restored to its former glory in 2001, Buxton Opera House is an exquisitely beautiful Edwardian theatre and one of the country’s finest examples of Frank Matcham theatre design.
