Coronavirus statement

We are still planning for this year’s Fringe in July, and intend for it to go ahead. However, like everyone else, we are concerned about Coronavirus/Covid-19 and we are thinking of all those affected by it. We will follow official advice on how to proceed.

Buxton Fringe is a big event but it differs from a football match in that it consists of many independent, small-scale events, usually of fewer than 50 people. So, unless advised otherwise, Buxton Fringe will take place and we will be supporting our artists and performers, and their events.

Note that the Fringe is an open-access event run by volunteers, and the decision about whether or not to operate lies with the artists, performance and venues and not centrally with Buxton Fringe. Our overriding concern though is public safety and we will do our utmost to address the challenges that face us.

Please keep us in your diaries for 1-19 July. There is a fantastic programme building up with over 100 entrants already, and we hope you will join us to enjoy them. We’ll keep you updated, but in the meantime, look after each other and stay safe. See latest Government advice and information for the public.
