Coronavirus: We are still planning for this year’s Fringe in July, and intend for it to go ahead. However, like everyone else, we are concerned about Coronavirus/Covid-19 and we are thinking of all those affected by it. We will follow official advice on how to proceed. Performers should not risk their health or that of the wider community by unsafe practices either during the Fringe or before it. Read our full statement on this. We are extremely sorry that the Buxton International Festival has had to cancel for 2020 but look forward to its return in 2021. Read their latest news.
