Happy New Year!

Now this isn't going to be terribly original - and frankly we should all have better things to be doing with our time. But if we let the occasion or event of one year ending and another beginning pass without acknowledgement, well what would people say about us?

All of us associated with the Buxton Festival Fringe do sincerely hope that all our many friends and supporters; all the artists and performers; the thousands of you that make up the audiences for the hundreds of events and performances during Fringes past and to come - that each and every one of you have a peaceful and Happy New Year.

Buxton Fringe 2013 runs from Wednesday July 3 - Sunday July 21.
Key dates include: Fringe Sunday - a free extravaganza in the Pavilion Gardens - will be on July 7th; Buxton Carnival will take place on Saturday July 13th.

Two of the biggest and most popular Fringe events have already been announced - details of the Military Tattoo in the Dome and the close-up High Peak Magicians in the Palace Hotel can be found on the Fringe website Programme pages.

Fringe 2013 will be the last in which we have use of the famous Paupers' Pit and Barrel Room in the cellars of the Old Hall Hotel. Work has begun on redeveloping the Crescent to open as a 5* spa hotel in the spring of 2015 and that will mean the loss of those two performance spaces.

Let's not rush ahead though: once the New Year begins we can confidently expect a steady stream of new events to be announced for Fringe 2013. Check out our pages regularly for all the latest news.

Stay safe everyone.
