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

Following the final deadline for the printed programme on April 20th, we now have an impressive 150 events, making this a very lively Fringe indeed! See who has entered.

We are currently in the process of putting together the printed Fringe programme which will be widely distributed from the beginning of June. See how you can order your own. You may also want to become a Fringe Friend as all our Friends get sent a copy automatically.

Our recruitment drive has really taken off and we now have nearly 200 Friends enjoying ticket discounts during the festival as well as special events throughout the year.

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.
