Buxton singers

Audiences under 30 years of age can now attend any event at this year’s Buxton Festival for just £5.

From July 5 – 21 the beautiful Peak District spa town will host top class opera, concerts, recitals and literary speakers. The ticket £5 initiative now makes hundreds of arts events at the festival even more accessible to young people.

Randall Shannon, Buxton Festival’s Executive Director, said:


‘The ‘Festival for a Fiver’ offer was designed to open new doors for students and young people who have never tried opera, or our other music and literary events before. 218 tickets were sold to the under 30’s last year and we hope to encourage even more young people to experience the Festival this year.

Now in its 35th year, the Festival has an impressive opera, music and literary series including operas by Saint Saen’s Mozart, Vivaldi and Benjamin Britten and a music series including piano duo’ quartet’s chamber orchestra’s and nationally renowned singers. The literary series features talks by Nick Robinson, Sandi Toksvig, Paddy Ashdown, BBC’s Julia Bradbury, Matthew Parris and many other well known writers.

Festival for a Fiver tickets can be booked at Buxton Opera House on 0845 12 72 190 or in person at the Box Office. These tickets cannot be purchased online. Proof of age required.
