RHS Chatsworth Flower Show - 7-11 June 2017

 For the first time in more than a decade, the RHS is embarking on a new show with a style and content unlike any of its existing events.

RHS Chatsworth Flower Show will run from 7-11 June 2017 and will be set within the 404.6ha (1000 acre) parkland of the Chatsworth Estate, home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Adding to the show portfolio of the RHS, which already includes shows at Chelsea, Cardiff, Malvern, Hampton Court and Tatton Park in Cheshire, the Chatsworth event will seek to expand on current offerings and surprise and delight visitors with an immersive horticultural event experience.

Its overarching theme is ‘Design Revolutionaries’ and will celebrate not only the creative genius of gardeners and garden designers from the past, especially Joseph Paxton who was once the estate’s gardener, but also the talent, ideas and conceptual thinking of today’s generation of designers.

Buxton Festival - 7th - 23rd July 2017

 

Buxton Festival is a summer celebration of the very best opera, music and literature, at the heart of the beautiful Peak District.

A morning literary series, afternoon concerts and rarely-performed opera in the evening offer a rich cultural experience, attracting big names and a faithful audience. Competitively priced tickets provide the opportunity to enjoy a broad range of arts events for all.

Buxton is one of the only Festivals to specialise in producing rarely performed operas by major composers – each opera is staged uniquely for the intimate Opera House. In addition to the Festival’s own productions, several touring operas feature on the programme.

Our artistic policy is to produce high quality and rarely performed operas, complementing the work of other major opera companies. We also involve the people of Buxton and the Peak District in arts activity through our community and education programme.
