JINGLE BELL TIME! A Christmassy mix of carols and modern songs

Buxton’s biggest contemporary music choir perform our first Christmas Concert. After two sell-out Fringe Festival concerts our 60 singers are back. We will showcase a mix of songs including musical theatre; pop; feel-good songs and, of course, carols. A great way to feel Christmassy! Come along, enjoy listening and join in some of those carols if you wish.

Derby Book Festival: We couldn't resist sneaking in one more event before Christmas!

We think that this one will be popular so please don't delay booking your tickets. They go on sale today (Friday 18th November) at 10am.

We are really excited about this one as we know how popular politics is as a genre in Derby. And there has been no bigger political story in 2022.
