What's on

The Buxton ‘Our Street’ programme is coming to a close very shortly.

We have hopefully created some great memories for audiences and participants in our events and showcased the unique personality of Buxton; the town and its residents.

Our finale 'Illuminate Buxton' events in February half term went off wonderfully - photos and video to be added soon! We still have artworks from the 'Through Your Eyes' project to be displayed, so watch out for them coming soon. Do have a look back through this archive to enjoy a taste of the fun that's been had on Spring Gardens.

Our Street: Through Your Eyes

The many faces of Spring Gardens

Buxton-based artist Linda Rolland has been asking a diverse range of local people for their perspectives on Spring Gardens.

Photographs, sketches and written work will be collaged into an artwork that will show Spring Gardens from a fresh angle. There may be surprising details hidden in plain view!

Old Haunts

An interactive audio experience – part local history tour, part ghost hunt. A fun adventure into the past uses of Spring Gardens, its inhabitants and its role in shaping Buxton's future. Local writers, Tom Crawshaw and Alice de Cent, together with theatrical technology whizzes Claywell Digital, have created a trail with a difference ...

Follow your guide, Matt (Michael Grady-Hall), an aspiring local historian who has returned to his hometown to record an audio walking tour. But things don't go quite to plan with his spooky sister, Claire (Suzanne McGrail), along for the ride.

Setting off from outside The Pump Room, the tour uses smartphone location technology to autoplay each stop of the tour when you reach the correct location. Matt wants to bring some of Buxton’s lesser-known history to life, but Claire is more focused on Buxton’s ghostly goings-on. Local actors from Buxton Drama League and REC Theatre provide the voices of some of Buxton’s spectral residents, who all seem to need someone to listen to them, while Matt desperately tries to keep the spirits' silliness at bay, and everyone’s mind on the historical facts.
