Q. What's Orange and Green and uses the Bus?

A. Buxton Fringe!

Yes, this year's traditional orange Fringe is going green in a big way!

I don't know about you but I love getting the bus - someone else does the driving, no need to fill up with petrol and best of all no need to worry about parking, and with the beautiful views on routes around Buxton I can sit back and enjoy the ride.

So imagine how excited I was to learn that the Fringe has teamed up with D&G and High Peak buses to promote travelling to the Fringe on public transport. Our lovely Fringe posters are going to be on display on 150 local buses and in bus stations at Derby, Hanley and Macclesfield.  

Keep your eyes peeled for the posters and if you spot one please post a pic and tag us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook (@BuxtonFringe) using the hashtag #FringeOnTheBus.

What's more we've signed up to the Plastic Free Pledge to help our friends at Transition Buxton reduce single-use plastic.  

And what perfect timing as our Fringe information desk is on the move - all of which has given Gaye, our lovely desk manager, the chance to have a sort out and reduce our single-use plastic.  

I predict it's going to be reusable cups and recycled bunting all the way!

We can't wait to see our live performers and welcome live audiences back so do pop in to say "Hi". 

But before you leave home, help us and the environment by remembering:

Bus pass/fare - Check! 
Reusable cup - Check!
Fringe app on phone - Check!

Let's make this the biggest Green Orange Fringe yet!
