Appeal for lockdown memories

We are looking to collect stories, experiences and objects relating to everyday life in Buxton during lockdown for COVID-19 and the weeks afterward. We want to create a historical record to show people in the future what it was like living in Buxton during this extraordinary time.

We’re looking for people to send us suggestions of what they think should be added to our collections. We will look through the suggestions and make a selection to add to the museum’s permanent collections. Send your suggestions by email to

Digital audience survey

Buxton Museum and Art Gallery are carrying out a survey to better understand who our digital audiences are and how digital audiences are engaging with arts and culture online, more generally.

The survey should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete and your help will enable us to evaluate the impact of our digital work and help us understand how people's consumption of online arts and culture have been changed by COVID-19.

Anything you tell us will be kept confidential, is anonymous and will only be used for research purposes. The information you provide will be held by ourselves and the Audience Agency, who are running the survey on our behalf. In compliance with GDPR, your data will be stored securely and will only be used for the purposes it was given.
