Buxton 2019

Time has been flying again, and we’re off to the Buxton Festival Fringe again very soon.  This year’s concert is on Friday 5th July, at our usual venue: the lovely Buxton Methodist Church.  It has a perfect acoustic for saxophones, and plenty of room for tea and biscuits.  Really, what more could we ask?

Just one thing, really – hope to see you there on Friday 5th!

Tickets will be available on the door, or you can buy them in advance from the Buxton Opera House website, at https://buxtonoperahouse.org.uk/event/summer-saxes.
