Assembly Rooms Crescent Crafts

What's happening?

The Assembly Rooms are open to enjoy!

On Tuesday 31st October come along to the Assembly Rooms for make and take craft activities. 

Inspired by the discovery of some old shoes during the Crescent’s restoration, this half term we’re stepping into the world of ‘Spooky Shoes’. 

Craft, build, play and explore with our Regency doll’s house, historical dressing up, wooden tea set and the ever popular LEGO. Or, just come along for a chat, and simply enjoy the opportunity to be in this wonderful room. 

10.30am-12.30pm & 2.00pm-4.00pm.

Free but donations are greatly appreciated.  

Make a day of it by booking your ticket to visit the Buxton Crescent Experience; for a special family-themed tour of 9 fun and interactive rooms.  (10.30am-3.30pm)
