Timetable for the day

The information below relates to our Buxton Awards Ceremony to be held at the Dome, Buxton on Saturday 10 November 2018.

The doors of the Dome will open at 8.45 am. You don't have to be there at that time, all we ask is that you allow sufficient time for your journey and you consider that you'll need to register to ensure your name is announced. In addition, if you've ordered a gown you'll need to collect this and you may wish to have formal photographs taken, inevitably these activities can involve a certain amount of queuing.
