Buxton Festival Fringe

6 to 24 July 2022

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  the biggest ever Buxton Fringe – a special Fringe40 event in 2019 with nearly 220 entries – the Fringe rose to the challenge of COVID with a mainly online event attracting over 100 entries in 2020. The 2021 Fringe went ahead with many live events, both indoor and outdoor, as well as an online component. 2022 looks set to be a large, mainly live Fringe marking the return of many of our favourite performers and with three managed venues, Underground, The Green Man Gallery and the Rotunda, all taking part.  All  live events will be subject to any COVID restrictions in July.
