Win tickets to Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in Buxton

The International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in Buxton will get underway this weekend – and you could be there to enjoy a show for free.

Wednesday, 28th July 2021, 3:27 pm

The annual G&S Festival is a glorious celebration of Gilbert & Sullivan, one of the best-known composer/lyricist pairings in operatic history, who wrote fourteen operas during their partnership, including classics like The Mikado, HMS Pinafore and The Pirates of Penzance.

You can see these and much more in the magnificent Buxton Opera House, and all performances will be accompanied by the National Festival Orchestra conducted by James Hendry.

The Festival, which runs from July 31 to August 7, also offers an exciting fringe programme where visitors can learn more about the operas with daily lectures from G&S experts, conversations with the stars, and matinee concerts.
