A Few Reminders

If you live in or close to Buxton (sadly not The Great Town of 2014 - the Academy of Urbansim award going to Cork, land of my great grandfather so I'm told) just a couple of reminders.
1] The Buxton Festival Fringe AGM takes place this coming Wednesday, November 13th, in The Old Hall Hotel (starting at 7pm in the Shrewsbury Room). It will, no doubt, be a tearful and emotional occasion as we say thanks to Stephanie Billen who is standing down after 5 years of chairing the Fringe committee. If you want to say 'Thanks' in person - and maybe get your picture in the Buxton Advertiser, we'd love to see you there.
2] We open for entries to Fringe 2014 on Sunday December 1st. We'll be taking some time off from processing the first entries by having a bit of  a launch 'do' at the Green Man Gallery starting at 6pm. The prospect of mulled wine, superior cheese straws and vol-au-vents and singalong carols should be all the enticement you need.
While you await Fringe 2014 you could do much much worse than see the Buxton Drama League production of "Breaking The Code" at the Pavilion Arts Centre, 15 & 16 November. Based on the life and work of Alan Turing you'll spot some Fringe regulars in the cast and possibly front-of-house.
Finally, if you are struggling to remember the glorious weather we enjoyed at Fringe 2013 check out the videos posted on the Fringe website that capture some of the heat and the drama.
