Buxton's beautiful Opera House was designed and built by Frank Matcham, one of Britain's finest architects in 1903.
Recently restored to its former glory after a major refurbishment programme, the theatre is well worth a visit. Expect a spectacular auditorium complete with cherubim, exquisite ceiling paintings and gold leaf decoration. A varied programme of events includes musical concerts, drama, children's shows, dance, pantomime, comedy and opera.
Prices vary according to performance.
