The Buxton Flowerpot Trail returns for 2024!

The Buxton Flowerpot Trail returns for 2024 thanks to a grant from the High Peak Borough Council Mayoral Charity, awarded by outgoing Mayor last year, Cllr Ollie Cross.
This year, the fun-filled, family-favourite arts trail, run by community arts group, Funny Wonders, will run during July and August and it simply aims to bring a smile. As ever, all in Buxton and surrounding villages are welcome and encouraged to get involved – households, businesses, schools and community groups – to make a flowerpot creation for the trail. They can be displayed in gardens, on gateposts, door steps or in windows, anywhere so long as they are visible from the pavement / public walkways. The theme is ‘Olympics and Paralympics’, as athletes from all over the world gear up for Paris 2024 later this summer. With all the different sports, national heros and famous sporting moments over the years, there’s lots to choose from. However, as ever, you don’t need to align with the theme – you’re welcome to come up with anything you like.
Making instructions and videos are available on the Funny Wonders’ website and free pots can be picked up at their stalls at the Buxton Spring Fair on Monday 6 May, Buxton Market on Saturday 18 May, an outdoor workshop at The Green Man Gallery on the afternoon of Saturday 25 May, 2pm-4pm, or at the Rotary’s Summer Fair in the Pavilion Gardens on Saturday 1 June. The deadline to register a location for the trail is Sunday 23 June – email
Leaflet attached and full details are on the website at
