Home to both the Buxton Festival – one the largest opera festivals in the UK – and the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival, Buxton Opera House has a bustling performing arts calendar year round, capped off with the obligatory pantomine at Christmas. Designed by British theatre architect Frank Matcham and opened in 1902, the opera house has been both a performance space and a cinema in its century-long career.
Buxton Opera House is reachable by train from Manchester Piccadilly Station and there is free parking after 6pm in the nearby Pavilion Gardens car park.

The comedian and TV presenter returns.
The guy everyone can do an impression of is back with a brand new stand up tour. A show that will change your life and how you perceive your place in the world. Bit much? Fine, it’ll be a very funny night of grumbles and jokes in which Josh will finally tackle the hot comedy topics of advent calendars, pesto and the closing time of his local park.
Widdicombe is best known for the twice BAFTA nominated and multiple Broadcast and RTS award winning show The Last Leg, as well as his critically acclaimed sitcom JOSH, Insert Name Here, QI, Have I Got New For You, A League of Their Own and his hit podcast Quickly Kevin Will He Score.
Hugely appealing stand-up which marries a keen observational eye to a petulant anger at
the apparent ludicrousness of the modern world -The Guardian
If they made frustration an Olympic sport the Last Leg co-host would win gold every time -Evening Standard
One of the most bankable talents in UK comedy -Guardian Guide
