Here We Go!

Since 2004 the Fringe has had a float at Buxton's Carnival in July. Please join us on Corbar Road on Carnival day. The procession takes off at 2pm but judging of floats takes place from 12 - best to bring a packed lunch.

Children and young people: Why not find a funny costume, dress in orange or be an orange and white Fringe fairy for the day? We'd love you to come on the float. Under 10s need a parent or guardian to accompany them.

Entrants: This is your ideal opportunity to dress up in costume (or in Fringe colours - orange and white), give out flyers and publicise your show. 

For further information or to become involved in the decorating of the float Send Message to Marketing It would be helpful to know who is planning to come.

In recent years the float has been a joint operation with Buxton International Festival.
