Buxton - one of the best places to live

According to the Sunday Times evidently. Not a paper I've read for 30 years - but perhaps it is better than it used to be! Anyway you don't need to read the ST to recognise the qualities of life in the town.

Barely 100 days to the start of the Festival and the Fringe - July 3rd for the Fringe and two days later for the Buxton Festival. So what do you need to know?

1] The Festival programme is published and tickets are on sale. If you're not a Friend of the Festival (that costs £25) then you'll have to wait until 2 April to book your seats.
2] The Fringe now has 87 entries and the cost of entering goes up on 1 April. So you have 12 days to get entries in at £65. From 1-21 April it costs £80 to enter. April 21st is the deadline for entries if you want to be sure of getting into our glossy, full colour programme which will be published at the beginning of June.
3] To mark the launch of the programme there will be a modest party at The Green Man Gallery - 55 High Street - on Friday June 7th from 8pm.
4] Before then Buxton is throwing all caution to the wind and on Bank Holiday Monday May 6th there is a Spring Fair. This will be fab in itself - but it is also an opportunity for musicians and other performers to take to the streets. If you want to be part of the fun you'll need to apply to join by the end of March. Go to the Spring Fair link!
