The King Loves GOLD!

As part of our summer tour of A Wild Walk – The Golden Thief, we want you to get creative. We want you to create your own Royal Rosette and bring it along to the show to catch the eye of the King. He just loves GOLD!

We’ve made a short “How To” Video.  Get ready to be creative, it’s not just the kids that get to have fun…you can too.

A Meeting of Minds

The Buxton Pavilion project has now culminated in an exhibition called “A Meeting of Minds”. This has been a collaborative project between Architecture students from Derby University, Buxton Junior School, an architect and engineer from Spaces into Places and Babbling Vagabonds. The exhibition is of drawing and models by the students when they were asked to design a community pavilion for Buxton.
There are hopes that this is the first stepping stone in realising a community pavilion that can be built and used for next years Buxton International Festival…so watch this space for developments.
