Former VisitEngland Chief Executive James Berresford will talk about modern day tourism in the UK before discussing the impact of the multi-million pound restoration of Buxton’s Crescent as a five-star spa hotel on the local economy.

Derbyshire man, James, is the first Chair of the Buxton Crescent and Thermal Spa Heritage Trust, which will establish and manage the associated visitor attractions focussing on the town’s unique spa heritage.

The Crescent will bring a major boost to the local economy by generating more visitors and a higher profile for the town, and James’ appointment will ensure that local people are kept fully engaged and informed, as the project acts as a catalyst for the regeneration of Buxton and the High Peak.
