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.

Described by The Times as a ‘charismatic virtuoso’, Tabea Debus is constantly exploring the horizons of music for recorder and has performed widely across Europe, Asia and the USA. As a soloist, she has appeared with La Serenissima, the English Chamber Orchestra at Cadogan Hall, and WDR Rundfunkchor at the Funkhaus in Cologne.
Born in Israel, Alon Sariel studied at the Jerusalem Academy and the Royal Conservatory in Brussels where he won numerous prizes and awards.
Debus and Sariel’s innovative programme revives Elizabethan and Baroque pieces and also includes works written specially for Debus by Gareth Moorcroft and Freya Waley-Cohen.
