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.
