Buxton Fringe 03 Jul 2024 - 21 Jul 2024

Welcome to the Buxton Festival Fringe, one of the largest open-access arts festivals in the country...

Buxton Fringe began in 1980 to run concurrently with the world-renowned Buxton Festival, with international opera and high profile literary talks at its core. FRINGE40 in 2019 represented its 40th year with the event lasting three days longer than usual.

The Fringe provides a showcase for performers and artists of all kinds in a variety of venues. Dance, drama, music, poetry, comedy, film, exhibitions and magic are just some of the forms that have appeared - we welcome all genres.

There will be over 500 individual performances!! See full details of the exciting shows, events and exhibitions here

The Fringe desk is right next door to the Opera House, where you can get more information on this years event!
