Buxton Spring Fair

Come and find us at Buxton Spring Fair this Bank Holiday Monday. There’s lots going on up at the Market Place, on The Slopes and in the Pavilion Gardens. Our stall is at the back of the Town Hall next to Two Left Hands, near the cavers, climbing wall and Mountain Rescue.
We have a little craft activity if you fancy a bit of quiet time or if you need a pick-me-up Mark and Phil are hosting The Curing Chemist, so be sure to call by and say hello.

Wagon of Wonder At Buxton Fringe!

We are very please to be able to be part of Buxton Festival Fringe this year. The Wagon Of Wonder is going to be performed in Gadley Woods with support from Buxton Civic Assoication. (There are no facilities there it’s just a beautiful woodland!) We were awarded a grant from the UK shared Prosperity Fund. Alongside the performances it will enable us to buy some equipment and host free family workshops on June 1st and 2nd in the different woods around Buxton.

We are testing out evening performances to see if it feels like a different experience for us and the families. Show times 2pm and 7pm

You can book your tickets here

This show was performed last year at Pooles Cavern under a different name of Adventure Shack but we thought this title was more catchy. So do tell all the adventurous families you know. It’s sure to be a magical memory making event.

Big Cat Parade

Thanks to the families that came along to see our big cat last weekend. We led the parade of cats and mice along Spring Gardens and down to The Slopes being accompanied by Two Left Hands Samba Band. This was the culmination of a larger project led by Creeping Toad (AKA Buxton artist Gordon Macellan) Which can read about here.
