Please note that in November 2020 the Buxton Lions did not run their annual Bonfire and Hog Roast at the Buxton Cricket Ground due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic. The club are looking to form a Community Team to run future bonfire events. Please contact our Lion Secretary if you are able to help.
Buxton is a lucky town and last year's 2019 firework display was a great success run as usual at the Buxton Cricket Ground. Unortunately the 2020 show due to the Covid-19 Pandemic is cancelled so one of the Buxton Lions major fund raising activities is added to the list of local events which have had to be "moth balled".
Last year's event was well publicised – thanks to High Peak Radio, the Opera House, the Pavillion Gardens, Pure Buxton, the Advertiser, and posters dislayed around the town - discounted tickets were sold i advance from the Buxton Opera House via their website and all children under 15 were admtted free of charge as part of the club's and sponsor's commitment to provide a safe and affordable evenng for familes reident in the local community.
Sponsorship by local businesses for various aspects of the evening is extremly important and the Buxton Lions would encourage you all to support our sponsors - they do make the difference.
Thanks go to our sponsors, Mark Drabble and Melissa Downhill and the staff from Tin Man Scrap from Harpur Hill who continue to support the fireworks show. Tin Man offer "The best in metal recycling" and help their customers by turning trash into cash.
