Galleries: Over the summer we will be updating our gallery and video pages. You can see some lovely 2021 pictures from the awards ceremony and from roaming photographer Donald Judge here.

Reviews: Our Reviews are in.

Audience Survey:  Thanks to everyone who filled this in. We are now analysing it and will issue a press release on it later in the autumn. It really does help us improve our service to hear your feedback!

Tickets: Each event has its own ticketing information. There have been some changes to ticketing relating to Covid procedures that may not be reflected in the printed guide. See our Tickets page for up to date guidance.

On the buses:  Over 150 or so Fringe posters are to be displayed on local D&G Buses and High Peak Buses with larger versions at Derby, Hanley and Macclesfield bus stations. We are very excited by this collaboration which also chimes with our environmental aims to encourage people to walk or use public transport where possible when attending the Fringe. Take a pic and tag us on social media if you spot one! Read blogger Carole's take on this!

Orange "hot spots": Look out for some bright orange floral displays plus bumble bees and flowerpot people around the town this July! Contact us if you would like to get involved. Read Carole's inspiring blog on painting the town orange.
