Buxton Festival Fringe began in 1980 to run concurrently with the world-renowned Buxton International Festival, with international opera and high profile literary talks at its core.
The Fringe goes from strength to strength each year and in 2019 celebrated its 40th year and saw more than 760 individual performances from 220 entrants making it the biggest fringe yet. In 2020, the Fringe successfully ran mostly online due to the coronavirus pandemic and saw 1377 performances from 102 entrants.
Because it is one of the largest fringe events in the country, many artists use it as a preview before appearing at the Edinburgh Festival.
This vibrant festival provides a showcase for a huge variety of performers and artists with genres including dance, drama, music, poetry, comedy, film, exhibitions, magic and more.
Events and performances take place in a variety of venues across Buxton such as The Old Clubhouse, The Green Man Gallery and more.
