The 2016 Fringe runs from July 6-24, so slightly different dates from the mainly opera-based Buxton Festival. A massive celebration of the arts, the Fringe is open to all and boasts a huge variety from theatre to music but also including comedy, visual arts, dance, family events, spoken word, guided walks, a military tattoo and more. In 2015 the Fringe celebrated its 36th year with over 170 entries, the largest number to date. See the Fringe’s revamped website www.buxtonfringe.org.uk for details of how the Fringe is shaping up and how to enter (final entry date is April 17 but there are early entry discounts before that).
