Arkwright's Artisan Markets Cromford 2019

Arkwrights Artisan Market is a monthly market which will take place in the beautiful setting of Cromford Mill Yard, with a focus on Derbyshire Artisans and Producers.  Cromford Mills are keen to provide a showcase and spotlight for the high quality makers and producers within the County and become recognised at a natural home for that talent.

Broadway comes to a sitting room near you

Pensioners were treated to a concert of Broadway show-stoppers in their own sitting room thanks to a partnership between Buxton International Festival and a local charity.

Royal Northern College of Music student Ellie Hull sang opera classics, hits from the musicals and wartime favourites including Bluebirds Over the White Cliffs of Dover at High Peak Council’s sheltered accommodation at Hartington Gardens, Buxton.

Roll up for the BIF Roadshow’s magical mystery tour

Stars more used to singing in the world’s leading opera houses will soon be performing in a village hall near you as Buxton International Festival (BIF) takes a taste of its 40th anniversary programme on the road.

BIF is bringing the glitz and glamour of opera right to your doorstep in a rolling roadshow which will stop at venues in the Peak District and Derbyshire Dales with a grand finale in Buxton’s newly-restored Octagon.

“It’s a magical tour aimed at taking the mystery out of opera,” said Festival Chief Executive Michael Williams.

The story of circles ...

Walking in Circles’ is a collection of paintings and drawings by Sue Lewis-Blake that will be exhibited at the gallery during February. They are part of an on-going project inspired by some of the stone circles found in the peak district – the nine ladies circle in particular. 

What's coming up... and can you help?

Have you considered volunteering at the Barn? 

Over the past four years the Barn has become a community hub in the heart of Dronfield – hosting all sorts of events, activities and local groups. Our Heritage Lottery Funding has now finished and 2019 will be the first year the Barn has to be fully self-sustainable – meaning our Volunteers are more important than ever!
