FRingey things

Just a quick plug for things Fringey coming up.

Tomorrow - Wednesday 13 February there is an  interesting show at Taddington Village Institute. Starting at 7.30pm A Love Like Salt is performed by a touring company The Devil's Violin Company. It features three tales based on Chaucer and Shakespeare - tales of drama and danger, love and lust, humour and pathos. The show was originally commissioned by the Bodleian Library and the English Faculty, University of Oxford. For more information see: www.thedevilsviolin.co.uk The show and the performers have got excellent reviews wherever they have performed and it would be a shame to miss the chance to see them. Tickets are £8.50 on the door - a bit cheaper if you get them in advance at the Overdale Veterinary Centre, New Market Street, Buxton.

In 2011 one the best shows ever to hit the Fringe was at the Packhorse in Crowdecote. Part of that event featured Barnsley's finest poet Ian McMillan accompanied by cartoonist Tony Husband. They are at Buxton Library on Thursday 28 March starting at 7.30pm. Tickets are £6.00. You'd be mad to miss it.

The Fringe Committee meets tonight - so tomorrow's blog will bring you up-to-date with all our news. Can't wait.
