1 to 19 July 2020
Buxton Festival Fringe was started in 1980 to run concurrently with the opera-based Buxton International Festival. This open access arts event, one of the largest fringe festivals in England, provides a showcase for performers of all kinds in a variety of venues with many using it as a springboard for the Edinburgh Fringe. Dance, drama, music, poetry, comedy, film, exhibitions and children’s events are just some of the forms that have appeared. The Fringe has a respected and professional image with a comprehensive website, free Fringe App, full colour printed programme, reviews, awards and Facebook, Instagram and Twitter presence. Following the success of last year’s biggest ever Buxton Fringe, a special Fringe40 event with nearly 220 entries, the Fringe is now welcoming performers to 2020’s Fringe with events being listed on the App and on the website as they come in. In 2020, Buxton Fringe has NOT cancelled but is going ahead with an innovative series of online and other events. There is also a new scheme Phone@5 through which performers can entertain people down the telephone. See press release.
