About Cheshire's Peak District

What's On in Cheshire's Peak District

If you're looking for culture, look no further than Cheshire's Peak District, with an eclectic events calendar offering everything from rural opera, experimental jazz and open air theatre, to stand up comedy and a world class art biennial.

Many events are staged in the historic houses that are dotted across the region, adding a unique atmosphere to the variety of performances.

Gawsworth Hall stages an impressively diverse open air theatre programme, and Tatton Park's picnic concerts feature world class artists and fabulous fireworks, located in a stunning lakeside setting.

Visit concerts, festivals and farmers’ markets, dress to impress for an opera performed in a unique rural opera theatre or call in at an exhibition about the area’s fascinating silk weaving history.

Here you'll find full listings of what's on in Cheshire's Peak District throughout the year.
