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.

Renowned for her “dazzling interpretative flair and exemplary technique” (Classic FM) the unique artistry of Jennifer Pike has taken the musical world by storm since she won the BBC Young Musician competition aged 12, while studying at Chetham’s School of Music. Her broad repertoire has included performances of Mozart with Rheinische Philharmonie, Zurich Chamber Orchestra and Singapore Symphony, Tchaikovsky with the Tchaikovsky SO of Moscow, and The Lark Ascending at New York’s Carnegie Hall.
In the first of her three performances as BIF’s 2020 Artist in Residence, Jennifer Pike will play with esteemed pianist Martin Roscoe, with whom she performs and records regularly.
