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.
L van Beethoven String Quartet in G major Op. 18 No. 2

Winners of the 2016 Royal Overseas League Ensemble Prize, the quartet are BBC New Generation Artists for the 2019 – 2021 season, making them the first and only period string quartet to have been accepted onto the scheme in its history.
