It is with great regret that for the first time in forty years we must cancel the Buxton International Festival in July 2020. This is an enormous disappointment but the health and well-being of our audience, our volunteers, the BIF team and all the artists involved is of primary concern. By taking this difficult decision now we are safeguarding the Festival for the Future. Read our full statement here.

Please save the dates for next year’s Festival taking place 2 – 18 July 2021.


Join the creative talents behind this year’s operas, oratorio and musical  for a fascinating look at the histories of these pieces, and their vision for the productions.

Includes lunch.

Tickets will be available to collect at the venue, there is no need to pick them up at Buxton Opera House.
