Welcome to the Buxton Festival Fringe, one of the largest open-access arts festivals in the country.
We are now in the process of sub-editing the many events which have been entered for this year's Fringe which runs from Wed July 3 to Sun July 21. The deadline to appear in the printed programme has now passed. Find out what's on in July.
Our Fringe Friends recruitment drive has really taken off and we now have 176 Friends enjoying ticket discounts during the festival as well as special events throughout the year. Why not join us?
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.
