What types of groups do we work with?
We classify a group as 10+ people. This can include:
- Tour groups
- Societies and clubs
- Staff outings
- Corporate entertaining
- School trips
As long as the booking meets the minimum requirement of 10 people, we consider this to be a group.
A group discount is available for any groups of 10+ to any events across our programme of opera, music, jazz and books. We can work with you to find you the best festival itinerary for your party. If you are new Buxton, we can help with local information and accommodation recommendations.
