Coronavirus statement


We are actively planning for 2022's Fringe in July. However, we will follow official advice on how to proceed. Like everyone else, we are affected by Coronavirus/Covid-19 and concerned about its impact. We are thinking of all whose lives have been especially harmed by it. 

Our overriding concern is public safety and we will do our utmost to address any challenges that face us. 

Note that the Fringe is an open-access event run by volunteers, and the decision about whether or not to operate individual events lies with the artists, performances and venues and not centrally with Buxton Fringe, but any events that we consider to contravene official guidance will not be condoned by us and will not go ahead under our banner. 

So please keep us in your diaries for 6-24 July. We have great confidence in our entrants’ creativity and ingenuity. In 2021 we had 111 events, mostly carefully planned physical events but also some online. In these difficult times the arts are more important than ever and we hope to have plenty to entertain and inspire you in July. We will keep you updated. In the meantime, look after each other and stay safe. See latest Government advice and information for the public. Nov 2021.
