Programme cover designer The winner of our competition to create artwork for the 2018 printed programme was New Mills artist Joanna Allen with her design Orange Festival Folk. A new badge has been created using part of her design. Joint runners up were Amy Whelan and Pam Smart. Thanks to all who took part. Postcards featuring the winning design and those of the runners up will be on offer during the Fringe. See more of the competition entries here. Read about Joanna's inspiration.
