Early entry recommended for the Buxton Fringe

Press Release 21 February 2012

Summer may seem a way off but, the Buxton Festival Fringe is encouraging potential actors, musicians, comedians and exhibitors to think ahead to July by booking their venue and signing up for this year's event.

Although there is plenty of time left to enter, the early booking period, with entry costing just £45, runs out on 29 February. After that, from 1 to 31 March the entry fee is £65 and from 1 to 22 April it is £80.

Chair Stephanie Billen comments: 'It is already looking quite exciting with entries including the popular Military Tattoo and the return of the Buxton Art Trail plus a whole raft of music performances, magic evenings and more. It is great to see the programme shaping up on our website http://www.buxtonfringe.org.uk.'

The website also features lots of help for entrants including an ever-growing venues list and tips on how to increase audiences. Entrants wishing to perform with the managed venue Underground Venues, should work to their earlier deadlines as detailed on their website http://undergroundvenues.co.uk/.

The Fringe is grateful to all its venues around the town including the spectacular Dome, home of the Fringe's main sponsor, The University of Derby Buxton.

This year's Fringe runs from Wednesday 4 to Sunday 22 July.
