Pump Room Live Returns to Raise the Roof with Free Weekend of Music

Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust are delighted to announce that Pump Room Live will return with a weekend of free daytime music performed on the Pump Room roof on the 21 and 22 September. The weekend has been made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England who are funding a programme of arts and events looking at the ecology and landscape of water here, running from September to January 2020. 

James Berresford, Chair of the Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust commented that “thanks to support from the Arts Council we can present this popular event again and offer a platform for a wide variety of artists, musicians and young talent to perform.” The Pump Room Live weekend programme is again being developed by local brothers Greg and Elliot Smith who are booking bands and artists from across the region. The event will also feature a silent disco and premiere WATER SWALLOWS, a sonic artwork by internationally renowned artist Amy Sharrocks, the lead artist for the Arts Council England project. The sound artwork is built from the sounds of water in and around Buxton and constructed from the words of the people who live here. Pump Room Live 2019 is sponsored by Markovitz. David Hopkins Chief Exec commented that “Markovitz are delighted to support Pump Room Live 2019 bringing yet more live music to Buxton in front of the stunning backdrop of The Crescent.”
