Buxton Festival 2014

The first news of the programme for the Buxton Festival 2014 was announced this week. The Festival runs from 11-27 July and four opera have been announced already. They are:
The Jacobin by Dvorak;
Orfeo ed Euridice by Gluck;
Otello by Rossini and;
Gloria, a Pigtale by Gruber.

It is also worth reminding Buxton people that a community choir is run at the Pavilion Arts Centre on a number of Tuesday lunchtimes. Next meetings - starting at 1pm - are on: 15 & 29 October; 12 & 26 November; 10 December. The first meeting was hugely successful and we look forward to developments.

Finally, for now, Buxton actor Michael Grady-Hall married Mariam today. Best Men were two other Buxton luminaries - Tom Crawshaw and Yaz Al-Shaater. Mike, Tom and Yaz do - of course - make up Three's Company and have been running Underground Venues during the Fringe for the past 8 years. Congratulations, love and best wishes for a long and healthy life together to Mariam and Mike.
