Buxton Festival Fringe needs you!

Volunteering to help the Fringe is not only key to its success but it also provides you with a unique opportunity to make friends and help shape one of the biggest events in Buxton's calendar.

Be a Fringe Friend

For a really very modest donation you can be one of our special Friends enjoying 10% reductions on tickets, first peek at the programme and invitations to Friends Events. But, of course, its main benefit is the warm glow you get from supporting such a worthwhile arts charity.

Our Friends are an important source of support in safeguarding the future of the fringe. Please find more details on this page or Send message to Friends.

Be a Volunteer

We need people to distribute programmes, write reviews, help with the Fringe Desk, Fringe Sunday, the carnival float and so on. We could do with keen photographers to record each Fringe. You can commit to as much or as little work as you can manage but you do become a member of the Fringe Association and entitled to vote at the AGM.

Perhaps you can help with providing accommodation for our Entrants. Many of these are students with unlimited talent and enthusiasm but limited financial resources. Most need a cheap place to stay for a few days, usually just a room with a bed is sufficient. The Fringe Committee is hoping to build up a list of people who would be willing to welcome some of these into their homes. If you are interested Send a message to Entrants' Accommodation

Be a Member of the Committee

This is properly called the Executive Committee. It meets 10 or 11 times a year and is very much a committee where everyone attends regularly and has a job to do outside committee meetings. As we are a charity, full committee members are also Trustees of the charity. If you are interested in becoming a Trustee, you need to read our Constitution.

If you wish to be a volunteer or a full committee member or would like more information please write to Stephanie Billen the Fringe Chair 32 Green Lane, Buxton SK17 9DL or Send message by email.

'I joined the Fringe Committee when I first moved to Buxton. It gave me a fantastic social life, and the chance to make a difference. I would recommend it to anyone new or old to the area.' James West.
