Authors Assemble

Free Event - Donations are welcome

Join us on Friday 17th March, between 10 am and 5 pm, in the splendour of the Crescent’s Assembly Rooms for ‘Authors Assemble’. A literary event, showcasing the work of Authors local to the High Peak or who have supported the work of the Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust. We are bringing writers from a variety of genres together under one roof, to shine a light on the former use of the Assembly Rooms as Buxton’s town library from 1972 to 1992 – a time which many local residents, and visitors alike, remember fondly. 
Authors will be showcasing their work, giving talks about their writing and participating in public book signings. Attendees will also be introduced to the work of the Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust and enjoy spending time within the Assembly Rooms. 
In attendance will be David Nolan – the King of Manc Noir, Celia Harwood – Buxtons’ own Crime Novel writer, David Blackmore – former Royal Armouries Museum Registrar, Ste Durham – local horror and thriller writer, Dr Peter Collinge – Historian, Researcher and Writer. Keep checking back for an updated programme and follow the Trust on social media for some messages from our Authors.
