Last weekend of the Fringe!

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

This year's Fringe is now in its last few days so don't miss out. There are still lots of great shows to see right up until Sunday evening! Pick up a programme from local tourist information centres or from the Fringe Information Desk next to the Opera House open every day from 10am to 4pm and 6-8pm tel 01298 73461 during the Fringe only. Our welcoming desk staff are only too happy to offer information and help. You can also sign up at the desk to become a Fringe Friend receiving at least 10% off tickets and offers and invitations through the year.

We hope you are excited about the Fringe as we are. Some 150 events add up to nearly 600 individual performances across more than 30 venues, making this a very lively Fringe indeed! See what's on.

Can't decide what to see? Read all our Reviews as they come in. With thanks to our dedicated team of volunteer reviewers. We are also eager to hear your views so do contribute comments on our enhanced diary.

Our Awards ceremony (for Fringe Friends, entrants, reviewers and by invitation) takes place next Sunday afternoon from 1.30pm upstairs at the Old Clubhouse next to the Opera House with results being announced on the website by the following morning. We value all our performers and see the ceremony as a chance to say thank you to everyone who has helped make the Fringe a success.

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.
