  • We apologise for the delay in bringing this page to you as publishing each daily page is taking longer than anticipated. However, we have made a start and hope to update this page further as we progress.

    The first week of the Festival the weather was very wet and grey which did not make for attractive pictures. The weather has improved, however, so we hope to be able to bring you some more images to give you an idea of what a picturesque town Buxton is.
