The Fringe is very grateful to local media including PureBuxton, Artsbeat, The Buxton Advertiser, Arts Derbyshire, Made in Derbyshire, BBC Radio Derby and High Peak Radio for helping to give performers masses of coverage and we were pleased to have a mention on BBC’s North West Tonight recently, but as our festival grows we’ve noticed that we are getting highlighted on national media as well.

Petroc Trelawny mentioned the Fringe and Amaretti Chamber Orchestra on his morning show on Radio 3 last Thursday http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b061fs2r#play while opera critic Geoff Brown also referred to the Fringe in The Spectator last week. The Fringe was also celebrated as part of Radio 4’s coverage of a Festival Mass at St John’s yesterday: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b062hn6s

Do let us know if you have heard the Fringe being referenced in other national papers, radio or TV – not to mention the international coverage we receive from World Fringe! Onwards and upwards!
