Fringe programme deadline approaches!

Press Release April 5th 2024 For immediate release

Artists wishing their event to be listed in the 2024 Buxton Festival Fringe Programme need to act soon!

Time is running out to be listed in the printed programme for this year’s Buxton Festival Fringe (July 3-21). The Fringe Programme is how a large part of the audience finds events and with some 150 events already signed up, organisers are urging would-be performers to enter online by the final deadline of Sunday April 14th. All information is listed on the Fringe website under Take Part.

The line-up so far is already enticing with the return of award-winners such as theatre company Shadow Syndicate, comedian Nathan Cassidy and in Music, the Cheshire Chamber Collective and harp-guitarist Jon Pickard among many other trusted names. Entertainment is as diverse as ever with everything from a promenade performance with Gentleman Jack to sketching in the Pump Room or sleight of hand from High Peak Magic Circle.

The printed programme will be distributed from the beginning of June and celebrated at an open-to-all party at The Green Man Gallery, Buxton on Saturday June 1st, 7-9pm.

Theatre, music, comedy, visual arts, children’s events and spoken word are all represented with events listed on the Fringe website - - as well as on the free Fringe App available from the Google Play Store and Apple's App Store.

The Fringe is grateful to all its venues including the managed ones, Underground, now in its exciting new location at The Springs shopping centre, and the popular Green Man Gallery. Also in use this year are fascinating locations such as Poole’s Cavern, The Crescent’s Assembly Rooms and, out of town, Eyam Parish Church. Among new venues welcomed by the Fringe In 2024 are Harpur Hill Village Hall, Hargreaves and La Gaby.

During the Fringe there will be a chance to attend free promotional events including Fringe Sunday at the Pavilion Gardens on July 7th as well as Fringe on Friday, offering taster performances at the Bandstand on July 5th and 12th.

The Fringe is a charity run by volunteers. Opportunities to get involved include helping out at the Fringe Information Desk, becoming a Fringe Friend or making a one-off donation.

Fringe Marketing Officer Stephanie Billen says: “Year after year, the huge variety of events and performers never ceases to amaze me. It’s great to see creativity flourishing in all areas of the arts. Our artists come from all over the country and beyond and there is an extraordinary amount of entertainment on offer. There is still time to get onboard as an entrant. Come join us!”
