Fantastic Fringe now over!

Welcome to the Buxton Festival Fringe, one of the largest open-access arts festivals in the country...

This year's Fringe is now over and we will be taking a well-earned break before preparations begin for 2015. We had a packed and emotional Fringe Awards ceremony on the last day. Many congratulations to the nominees and winners and thanks to all who took part in the Fringe this year as well as all our volunteers, reviewers, supporters and venues. See the full list of nominees and award winners.

We had some great press coverage both locally and nationally. As Hugh Canning put it in The Sunday Times: "That’s why I love Buxton: the Festival opera may play to a select audience, but the festive spirit, including a lively Fringe, is so infectious that even rain can’t dampen it."

Over the summer we will be updating our gallery pages to bring you all the best images from a sizzling Fringe summer with some 150 events adding up to nearly 600 individual performances across more than 30 venues.

We are very grateful for the key financial help we receive from our supporters who are acknowledged on our Links page. Would your company be interested in raising its profile and helping the Fringe at the same time? Contact our Fringe Chair.

As a charity run entirely by volunteers we are always looking for new blood. See how you can help.
