Small is beautiful at Buxton Fringe

PRESS RELEASE: For immediate release June 3rd 2021

From Dance to Children’s Events, some of the smallest categories look set to offer the biggest entertainment at this year’s Buxton Fringe (July 7-25).

The Fringe is hoping to present its traditional Fringe Sunday event on the afternoon of Sunday July 11. This free showcase of performers is scheduled to take place in the beautiful setting of the Pavilion Gardens near the Bandstand.

The Gardens are also the setting for Tiny! Mouse Queens and Mole Kings, delightful children’s workshops run by Stone and Water offering tips on how to make miniature castles, creatures and characters. Stone and Water’s Buxton Pride Picnic in the park is also a family-friendly occasion, celebrating the town’s LGBTQ+ community with the help of fancy hats and cakes. Look out too for the ever popular Shakespeare Jukebox presenting classic Shakespearean scenes in the Gardens. They will also be offering online footage filmed in the Peak District countryside.

The whole town becomes the setting for Regency Music and Dance, a costumed demonstration of musical styles and dance sets from the Pride and Prejudice era by Regency ReJigged. There is also a fascinating, round-the-town, family-friendly Buxton Letterbox Trail to identify six different letterboxes and receive a souvenir badge and postcard.

The fun continues with Underground’s Comedysportz, an all-ages, competitive comedy show with sketches inspired by audience suggestions, taking place at The Old Clubhouse.

Marketing officer Stephanie Billen adds: “New events are still coming in and our entrants are being more creative that ever this year. It is great to have so much live entertainment to enjoy including some lovely events outdoors, many of which are free”.

Details of all Fringe events are on and the free to download Buxton Fringe App.

The Fringe wishes to thank High Peak Borough Council, the Fringe Friends and the town’s many Fringe supporters and venues.
