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.

The Kanneh-Mason siblings have been playing together since they were very young and this exceptionally talented Nottinghamshire family has been the subject of a number of documentaries including BBC FOUR’s Young, Gifted and Classical.
Sheku became a household name after performing at the 2018 wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and has released two albums on Decca Classics: Inspiration in 2018 and Elgar in January 2020. Isata’s debut recording, Romance, featuring the music of Clara Schumann, was released on Decca Classics in 2019 and shot straight to the top of the classical charts. Braimah is a member of the Royal Academy Symphony Orchestra and the Chineke! Orchestra.
Playing for the first time at Buxton, The Kanneh-Mason Trio present a varied programme featuring romantic jewels by Mendelssohn and Fauré as well as an early work by Shostakovich, written when the composer was just sixteen years old.
This event includes an interval.
