Artists and performers wanting to enter this year's Buxton Festival Fringe should be aware that this Saturday April 24th is the strict and final deadline for entries in the 2010 printed programme.
A staggered system of deadlines has already resulted in many events coming in with over 100 entries at the last count.
The 2010 Fringe runs from July 7-25. A massive celebration of the arts, the Fringe is open to all so there is a huge variety from theatre to music but also including visual arts, dance, family events, street theatre, poetry, film, guided walks and more. This year, once again, every category has been represented, providing something for all tastes and interests.
Comic treats in store include a comedy lecture on How To Survive a Zombie Apocalypse, award-winning comedian Gerry Howell and the return of Fringe favourites Dr Johnny Fašade and Helen Keen; Dance features contemporary dance and Morris Dancing, and there's the second Buxton Film Weekend to look forward to.
Music and Theatre sections are massive as ever with highlights including celebration of the 400th anniversary of Montiverdi's Vespers, a concert version of Carmen, and old favourites including High Peak Orchestra, Partita and the Amaretti String Quartet. In the Theatre category, there's new work from Buxton favourites the REC Theatre, Moving Talent, Buxton Drama League, Three's Company and Imagine, with other dramatic works coming from as far afield as Rome..
There is always something different at the Fringe - watch out this year for a Military Tattoo in the Dome, children's theatre featuring the dreaded Piggy of Doom and even a nude poet!
Full details of events will be published in early June in the widely distributed free Fringe programme but you can see how it is shaping up before then by checking out the Fringe's website http://www.buxtonfringe.org.uk The website also includes contact information and full details of how to enter.
