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.

Winner of the Royal Over-Seas League Gold Medal in 2019 and the 2018 International Tenor and Bass Trombone Competition in Budapest, Kris Garfitt is a member of the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra. He performs regular duo concerts with the exceptional Korean pianist, Seri Dan. Since 2018 they have performed in Lithuania, China, Korea and have toured in England and Germany. This programme is a tour de force of the trombone repertoire, from the stunning lyricism of Eugene Bozza’s Ballade and Weber’s Romance to the unique Improvisation of Enrique Crespo, demonstrating the true range of which the trombone is capable.
