Weather Forecast: There will be weather every day

All talk and reporting of snow is banned on this Blog. It's certainly a inconvenience - but let's just get on with it shall we?

We went for a walk to Poole's Cavern this morning - just for a bit of fresh air really. Though their hot chocolate (Fair Trade) is highly recommended. Anyway came away with a bit of news regarding the Fringe. Looks like the Cavern is going to be in use throughout. Apparently Butterfly Theatre - who have sold out with Shakespeare in the cave for two years running - are back for the first two weeks of the Fringe with Hamlet. [That's probably Shakespeare again. Whole play in an hour. Either they talk very quickly; do three simultaneous performances of different bits of the play; or edit it heavily. I know what my money is on]. Anyway look out for details - their shows always sell quickly and you won't want to miss out.

For the third week of the Fringe the cave will have a different show to mark the 160th anniversary of the Cavern. When we know a bit more we'll let you know - but it will feature one the Fringe's dearest friends!

Some exciting but slightly vague news as yet about a new Fringe venue for 2013. For potential Fringe entrants there is a list of possible venues on the website - www.buxtonfringe.org.uk. The latest venue to creep on the list is the Pump Room in the Crescent. Teasingly it says "details to follow". Can't wait.
