Practical information

Tuesday 18th February 2020

10.30am - 1.30pm Make and decorate your own paper Buxton Crescent model. Can you follow in Georgian architect John Carr's footsteps and create perfectly proportioned symmetrical splendour? Allow 30 minutes for the activity. At various times we'll be leading very short interactive tours to have a go at 'reading' the Buxton Crescent building - encouraging us to really look up and take notice. Times will be announced on the day subject to demand.


Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund these activities are free, but a donation to the Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust would be welcome (if you are able).
