Keep in touch

Our mailing list is the best way to stay up-to-date with us. We send out a seasonal newsletter with info on all our upcoming events and activities, and we can keep you updated when adding new dates for sold-out events. We never bombard your inbox and you’re in control of what communication you receive from us.


We’re dedicated to providing exceptional experiences for families, schools and youth groups.

Public Learning & Families

Education is at the core of everything we do, and we’ve always got things in the pipeline for children and young people.

Our Pitter-Patter sessions are a fantastic way to access Buxton’s heritage with children under 8, where we open the Crescent Experience and Assembly Rooms with playful activities.

For older children, look out for our Crescent Crafts sessions and check our What’s On page for new and fun events.

Schools & Groups

Our education team have many years of teaching experience and we understand how important it is to make the most of an external outing.

From the start, we work with you to create an efficient itinerary of exciting workshops, activities and experiences both in our spaces and with other organisations in Buxton.

We are uniquely positioned to offer cross-curricular trips, with relevance to history, geology, archaeology and more.

We also have access to Buxton Museum’s handling boxes, allowing your students to get hands-on with real Roman and Stone Age artefacts.

"Buxton's thermal mineral water has inspired people for over 2,000 years. It was the Romans who first discovered the warm spring."
