Hunter Davies

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.


London Parks and Happy Old Me: How to Live A Long Life and Really Enjoy It

Hunter Davies may just be Britain’s most motivational and inspirational octogenarian. As Hunter navigates what it means to be alone again after 55 years of marriage, coping with bereavement and being elderly (he still doesn’t believe he is), he shares his wisdom and lessons he has learnt living alone again. In London Parks, Hunter takes the reader on a joyous and colourful stroll through many of the parks that are renowned in the capital, that he himself has gotten to know and love since he moved there in the early 1960s.
