The fun-packed day on May 6 kicks off outside the Town Hall at 10am with a speech from well-known Buxtonian Bill Western MBE - followed by zumba with Angela’s Accidental Fitness.

Musicians will be performing across three areas of the town centre - including the town hall, outside the Old Hall near the Crescent and outside Argos at Spring Gardens.

The family spectacular will also feature ferret racing, children’s rides, hot food and drink stalls, arts and crafts and food produce.

Organiser Jane Fletcher said Buxton looked set for a ‘great day’ - with ‘something for everyone’.

She said: “The weather last year was fantastic and it all relies on that so hopefully it will be just as good this year.

“We have some great performers and it’s a lovely family event.

“Thousands of people come into the town for it - there’s a bit of something for everyone.”
