Fringe Programme Cover Artwork for 2015
There are times when we seem to be scarily organised on the Buxton Festival Fringe. Here we are, seven months away from Fringe 2015 and we have the cover artwork sorted!
We're delighted to be able to share this design with you. The artwork was provided by Isabelle Wilkins a recent graduate from the University of Derby, which is, of course, the sponsor of the Fringe..
Isabelle, who is from Barnsley, told us: “I like to work by layering colours and textures such as fabric and string and I wanted to do something bold and simple that invoked feelings of family, excitement and festivity.” We're confident that her design achieves exactly that.
We're meeting Isabelle later in the week and we'll carry an interview with her - and some photos - in the blog next week.
For those of you living in Buxton - or near by - you may want to know about a folk carol concert (with festive readings) at St Mary's Church, Dale Road this coming Wednesday, December 10th. The event is free - but donations to charity are invited - and starts at 7.30pm. St Mary's is a lovely church in the Arts & Crafts style and is a Fringe venue.
Finally, for now, we mentioned last week that next year marks 175 years of well dressing in Buxton. Here - in about 175 seconds - is a time-lapse video of the team working on 2014's petalling in St John's Church.
