Buxton group hosts fun day, cultural exhibition on May 22

The Buxton Arts Theatre (BAT), a community-based drama group, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Department of Culture, Youth and Sports, is set to hold a grand fun day and cultural exhibition on May 22.

Established in January 2012, the BAT has positively impacted the community of Buxton, among other villages, through the use of drama by working along with schools and training children to better their performances in the arts. The group is made up of young, passionate lovers of the arts who have been performing together for almost 10 years.
