Founded 1861: ‘We were formed as a village band, with the patronage of the Church and Duke of Devonshire, to teach music without charge, provide an educational and constructive pastime, develop community spirit and entertain. The band has earned an enviable repuation and has taught many hundreds to play. Today, Burbage Band continues to promote and represent Burbage and Buxton both locally and abroad at a whole host of differing concerts, functions and celebrations, providing music in a wide variety of styles, and has active members from every generation.’

‘The Choir has reached a total of 60 members, so we now have a waiting list ... Everyone is welcome: any age, any voice. Low, high in the middle or not sure. We sing in three parts: alto, second soprano and top soprano. You'll soon find the section where your voice feels most comfortable. You don't need any experience and don't even need to read music. Nobody will ask you to audition or perform solo. You don't need a large powerful voice - the idea is to blend all our voices in harmony. All you need to do is be willing to listen and learn.’

Our repertoire ranges from Eric Coates to Sibelius, Borodin to Weber and we like to think we are ambitious in our programmes. We take part in the Buxton Festival every year and we have won acclaim and recognition.’
