How to buy tickets

All you need to know about Fringe ticketing.

Please note the following information is subject to change. Most tickets are available from the beginning of June if not before. Keep in touch with venues info and updates here.

Buying tickets is easy as each event has its own booking information detailed on each event listing. For many shows, you will find tickets available on the door or in advance from the act's own tickets sales outlet. Seating is usually unreserved. Look out for discounts for children or for concessions (you may need to show proof of status). Here are some additional pointers:

Underground at Spring Gardens: Underground Venues' new home for 2024 - in a former shop in Spring Gardens. Tickets for all 52 shows can be bought online from - with no booking or transaction fees, from 21 June. 

During the Fringe, tickets can also be bought in-person from Underground's Box Office, upstairs at Sacro Lounge on Spring Gardens. This is also the waiting area for shows at Underground. The Box Office is open 12:30pm-10:00pm every day of the Fringe.

How to buy tickets for The Green Man Gallery

Tickets can also be purchased by phone: call 01298 937375 during gallery opening hours and pay by card (no booking fee). Alternatively tickets are available online at (10% booking fee.) Go to for ticket links. Tickets can also be purchased on the door immediately before each performance, if available, but advance booking is recommended.  Tickets will be on sale at the gallery and online on Wednesday 1st May.

How to buy tickets for all other venues and for online events

Refer to the ticketing information detailed on each event listing. Some performers choose to sell tickets via the Buxton Opera House - look for the Opera House Sales on the website and in the printed programme. These tickets will be available from June onwards from Buxton Opera House Box Office, Water St, Buxton SK17 6XN, 01298 72190, or via Box office sales at the Opera House will continue right up to the time of performance but internet sales will cease at close of business the day before. Fringe Friends may book in person, online or on the telephone. If booking online, Friends should use the special promo code (communicated separately to them via the Fringe) in order to receive their 10% discount, and then show their card when they pick up their tickets. Don't forget to pick up prepaid tickets (including those sold via internet) from the Opera House Box Office before the performance! Please note the Opera House is only able to advise on the tickets that it is selling. During the Fringe, the Fringe Information Desk, now in the Pavilion Gardens conservatory near the restaurant, can provide general advice but does not sell tickets.

Accessibility information for people with disabilities

The Fringe believe that arts are for all and has a thriving Community Links scheme aiming to bring performances and workshops to people who might otherwise miss out.

The Fringe uses a wide number of venues, some more accessible than others. Our venues list offers useful information about the accessibility of key venues that are used during the Fringe as well as venue contact details for further enquiries.

High Peak Borough Council offers information about public toilets for people with disabilities here. The Pavilion Gardens building has a Changing Places toilet. These are larger than standard accessible toilets and designed for dependent use, for example those with a carer. See also Visit Buxton's useful Accessible Buxton page.
