Buxton Awards Ceremony - postponed

The Buxton Awards Ceremony scheduled for Tuesday, 7 December, has been postponed due to adverse weather conditions.

The event will now be held on Wednesday, 27 April, 2022.

Ceremony postponed to April

Due to adverse weather conditions in and around Buxton, it is with great regret that we had to postpone the Buxton Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, 7 December, 2021.

Significant unexpected snowfall during the previous day resulted in local road closures and unsafe conditions. As a result, some of the external suppliers providing essential elements of the event were unable to reach us to set up. With more snow forecast, and Storm Barra due to impact the area on the day, we had to prioritise everyone’s safety.

We were greatly looking forward to celebrating with you all and are just as disappointed as you that we have had to make this decision at such short notice.

The Buxton graduation ceremony will now be held on Wednesday, 27 April, 2022. We will be in touch soon with more information about refunds for the postponed event, and the details for the rescheduled ceremony.

A celebration of success
