Buxton Flowerpot Project 2020

We've had to make some changes to the  Buxton Flowerpot Trail this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic BUT it is going ahead. Click here for more information.

To get involved, please contact us.



This year, the project is supported by High Peak Borough Council, Derbyshire County Council and Tarmac.


This summer, we hope to take a look back at our first big community project - M.A.S.S.I.V.E. which was to celebrate the Millennium. How has Buxton changed? How has Funny Wonders changed? How has the plight of the elephants changed? Our plans are currently on hold, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we hope to deliver this project in some way at some point.


Changing Faces 2020

This project involves weekly, after-school and some weekend workshops for local, young people aged 11-18yrs who face difficulties. We work with local schools and youth services and hope to make a positive impact on the lives of our participants. We always welcome new practitioners and volunteers to get involved.

Between September 2017 and December 2018, this project was supported by Children in Need. In 2019, we received grants from The Bingham Trust and High Peak CVS Health & Wellbeing Partnership. For 2020/2021, we have secured funding from Derbyshire County Council. Workshops restarted in February 2020. To see the project page, click here. Workshops are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please get in touch if you are interested in working with us or to refer a young person.
