It's Autumn and We're Back

As part of our commitment to public service blogging here are two reminders: British Summer Time ends on Sunday 25th October and Christmas Day is on 25th December (a Friday this year).

Of more significance, we feel, is sharing some of the Buxton Fringe news that we have been accumulating. In fact we have more news than we can fit into one post - unless we become The Guardian on Saturday and have about six supplements. So here is today's news - there will be more in a few day's time.

1] Buxton Fringe 2016 will run from Wednesday July 6th right through to Sunday July 24th - another 19 days of summer fun. [The Buxton Festival is from 8-24 and they have already announced three opera - see their sparkly website for news of all the Festival is doing. And some of it is in November!]

2] The Buxton Festival Fringe will be open for entries on December 1st. Entry prices have been frozen at last year's rates. So start sorting out your venues all you artists and performers. To celebrate the opening of Fringe 37 we'll be having a bit of a community singalong of Derbyshire Village Carols at the Green Man Gallery. More details to follow very soon. But something like this is what we are aiming at.

3] Among the new friends we made during the last Fringe were Joanne and Chris (Miss Judy and Mr Punch). They'd love to see any videos that you might have of them - and they were pretty much everywhere. If you have anything please post a message on our Facebook page or somewhere and we'll pass it on.

4] Finally, for now, a bit more news on the Past Lives Project which launched a Buxton project during the Fringe. The Project is still collecting home cine film of Buxton and the adjacent area to create a film (about 50 minutes with original music) of the area. The hope is to gather film until around Christmas and edit the whole lot for a public launch early in the New Year. So dust off all your old Super 8 footage and contact the project at info@pastlivesproject.com or ring 07890 211 524.

More soon!
