Countdown - 20, 19...

More or less 20 days to go for the start of Buxton Fringe 2013 - are we ready? Let's check off a list:
1] Programme Launch Event - that happened on June 7th. Nice relaxed and friendly event at The Green Man Gallery. Wine from Portland Wine. So - TICK!
2] Fringe Launch Party Preview - Underground Venues at the Old Hall Hotel on Tuesday July 2nd at 8pm. FREE PARTY (well you'll have to buy drink - but free entertainment). So - another TICK!
3] Fringe Sunday - July 7th 2.00-4.30pm. Our own party and picnic in the Pavilion Gardens. Acts booked, Fringe banner and ladders ready, balloon modelling organised, Connect 4 and big dominos sorted. So - TICK!
4] Buxton Town Carnival - Saturday July 13th, starting at 2pm. The Fringe Committee has a truck for the day, hay bales, loads of orange stuff to decorate with and a fierecely competitive team aiming to win another prize. Yet another TICK!
5] Fringe 2013 Awards Event - Sunday July 21st at the University of Derby, Buxton Dome. The wine is ready (Portland Wine again). But the winners have yet to be decided. But we're ready to see and hear and argue and agree. TICK!
6] New t-shirts and yards and yards of new Fringe bunting have been ordered. TICK!
7] A lovely team of people have been recruited to staff the Fringe Information Desk from 3rd July. TICK!
So what is there left to do? Well, I've yet to track down a bottle of the new Fringe Ale - so help might be needed there. Apart from that we're ready. Are you?
