What's on

Voices from the Peak – Live! Saturday 18 May, Old House Museum, Bakewell

Event details

In Voices from the Peak – Live! Mark Gwynne Jones delivers a funny and absorbing in-person presentation drawing on childhood experiences and encounters with poachers, shepherds, and mineral miners in the Peak District. Here is a landscape rich with both beauty and danger. An award-winning show that rediscovers the stories that connect us to the land.

Bakewell’s Old House Museum is in a Tudor building where you can explore the stories of past inhabitants and owners from Christopher Plant, the Tudor tithe collector; Sir Richard Arkwright who housed his mill workers here; and the Pitt family who lived in one of the cottages in Victorian times.

For one night only – Saturday 18 May – the museum is the setting for Voices from the Peak – Live!

Surrounded by history, with a limited number of tickets available, this promises to be an extra special live performance.

Doors open 7pm, show starts 7.30pm. Old House Museum, Cunningham Place, Bakewell DE45 1DD.
