Buxton Fringe announces Pump Room Xmas party!

Buxton Fringe has announced that its open-to-all Christmas Party will be held at Buxton’s historic Pump Room opposite the Crescent this year.

The fun event will be held on Friday December 9 from 7 to 9.30pm and will offer a chance to sing along to Derbyshire Village Carols led by Kaleidoscope Choir leader Carol Bowns. There will also be a pay bar, party food and a raffle (please bring cash!).

The party will also celebrate the opening of entries to next year’s Fringe which runs from July 5 to 23. Performers can sign up online from December 1st taking advantage of the early bird entry fee of £55 until the end of February. Party-goers will have an opportunity to ask any questions as well as to get involved behind the scenes or become a Fringe Friend. Full details on the entry process and available venues can be found in the Take Part information on the Fringe website:

Buxton Fringe chair, Stephen Walker, says: “It’s good to get back to our Christmas Party after two years off. Our Derbyshire Village Carols sing-along has become an established highlight of the festive season, and it will be great to hear the carols in the wonderful setting of the Pump Room for an event that also marks the opening of entries to Fringe 2023.”
