The URC Buxton - a friendly venue

The Buxton Fringe is grateful to all the pubs, clubs, churches, halls and houses that open their doors for our events every July. Whether they accommodate one events or dozens they all matter.
The United Reformed Church has become increasingly important to us in recent years - because it is affordable, friendly, convenient and flexible. During the Fringe you'll find theatre, dance, recitals, music and the spoken word in the various rooms at the URC.
Already for 2013 almost 40 performances are scheduled to take place there. Among these you'll find:
Dance - The Green Robin Dance Company with The People Next Door. Georgie, Hayley and Conrad are ordinary enough - their lives may look just like yours!
The Brick Wall Ensemble's A Rose By Another Name is a take on Romeo & Juliet.

On the musical front we look forward to hearing a piano recital of Baroque music by James Pelham (19th); there will be a lunchtime chamber recital by the Bright String Trio (10th); the Deconet String Quartet will be performing one evening (17th).

The library theatre touring company will be doing plays by two of the nation's favourite playwrights - John Godber and Alan Bennett and we are pleased to welcome back Planet Rabbit who have built up a loyal Fringe following. "One Sunny Day" is a nostalgic comedy about a family that has bought a cottage on the Yorkshire coast. This rings a bit of a bell!

There is further theatre - from Cotton Grass Theatre; The Unknown Land is inspired by Artic exploration; and Arletty Theatre's Patchwork Lives is a story of Nottinghamshire folk, sewn into a quilt, turned into a play.

All this is one venue! Take a close look at our rapidly expanding 2013 programme for the fullest information.
