You are welcome to come and visit our building on open days and heritage talks and for all our publicised events.In August 2013 the building was bought from the council by the community and is run by a local charity. The aim is to restore this amazing building and theatre. While we wait for the lottery fairy to do her thing,we are running events such as live music performances, art and heritage exhibitions, film shows and private hirings.The Pavilion is also the home of The Peak District Lead Mining Museum which is very successful,very popular and not at all scruffy ! « less
