Buxton Day of Dance – Information for visiting sides

Sadly, we have decided to formally cancel Buxton Day of Dance 2020 in light of continuing uncertainty around Covid 19. We are hoping to have some form of virtual presence on Sat 18th July.
Buxton Day of Dance 2021 is provisionally planned for Sat 17 July 2021.
Stay safe.

Buxton Day of Dance, organised by Chapel-en-le-Frith Morris, is an annual feature of Buxton Festival Fringe so you are guaranteed a lively and inquisitive audience with the chance to make new dancing friends or renew old acquaintances. The event is entirely centred on Buxton, with relaxed walks between dance spots, and no coaches or travel required.

  • There is no charge for the day.
  • Dancing starts around 10.30am and continues to around 4.30pm.
  • Lunch can be taken at any of the local inns, pubs, restaurants, hot potato stands, KFC, and fish and chip shops.
  • Collections from previous Buxton Days of Dance have enabled us to support local charities.
  • If there is sufficient interest (and good weather) we may continue the dancing on Sunday

Thinking of staying over?
