The Fringe was very sad to announce the death of former chair Peter Low in the autumn of 2014. His 2009 interview with High Peak Radio is available on this page. Finding herself in a reflective mood, Fringe marketing officer Stephanie Billen had coffee with the Fringe's first secretary, Sheila Barker, and recorded an interview about the very early days of the Fringe (see panel on the right). Do let us know if you have memories you would like to contribute to these pages.
Fringe activity on Twitter really took off in 2013. Enjoy this flavour of it during the febrile atmosphere of the Fringe awards.
In 2012 then Fringe Chair Stephanie Billen was interviewed for Pure Buxton magazine about the behind-the-scenes work of the Fringe committee throughout the year.

2009 was the 30th anniversary of the Buxton Festival Fringe. To mark the occasion, High Peak Radio ran a series of monthly interviews looking back over three decades of fun. To listen to these interviews click on the play button on the images on the right hand side of the page, or at the bottom of the page, if viewing on a smartphone.
In 2009, the 30th anniversary year of the Buxton Festival Fringe, we asked Fringe entrants: 'What does the Fringe mean to you?'. With thanks to the Buxton Advertiser, which ran these quotes as part of their 2009 Festival and Fringe Supplement.
When we celebrated our 25th anniversary in 2004, we asked celebrities for their memories of performing in Buxton and received some warm responses.
The Fringe endeavours to review all shows. The complete collection from 2002 onwards is displayed here.
