Another century for the Buxton Fringe

Buxton Festival Fringe has hit the century mark again!

One hundred and two acts have so far registered for this year’s Fringe.

The quality and diversity of the entries also bodes well, ranging from the return of surreal stand-up Tam Hinton to Derbyshire-inspired jazz from the JET Collective and a tribute to Cabaret writers Kander & Ebb from Ladyblue Music.

Novelist Edmund Bealby-Wright and composer Joseph Haydn have a Quartet à tête with stories illustrated by music.

The Young Rec Theatre Company will be taking on Oscar Wilde’s classic play Salome, and also in theatre, Cul-de-sac theatre depicts two astronomers threatening to make God irrelevant in The Transit of Venus, while Fol Espoir will bring Winston Churchill as never seen before - on the run in the African Savannah in 1899.

There is still time to enter the Fringe. The deadline for inclusion in the printed programme is April 22, with entries costing £80.
