Derbyshire Christmas Carols

A new volume of Derbyshire carols has been published -
There is to be a day-long workshop in Hathersage on November 30th, followed by an evening singing.
We'll try and organise an opportunity to sing some of these carols in Buxton. If you have any bright ideas on that front do let us know.

Buxton Festival Fringe 2014!

Less than 100 days since the last Fringe Festival started and we have loads of news about Fringe 2014 already. In no particular order:
1] Fringe 2014 runs from Wednesday July 9th - Sunday July 27th (note this is slightly later than previous years)
2] You will be able to enter the Fringe from Deecmber 1st! [You will have until Easter Sunday April 20th to get your entry in].
3] To mark/celebrate the opening of Fringe 2014 for entries there will be a modest party at The Green Man Gallery on Sunday December 1st - watch this space for more details shortly.
4] The Pauper's Pit - a key Fringe venue - was expected to close later this year as part of the redevelopment of the Crescent. We have been told that the Pit will now be open for the whole of 2014 - and so is available for Fringe 2014!
5] Four venues around the Market Place, Buxton will be run as 'managed venues' in 2014 - This is good news for performers and audiences.
6] Fringe Sunday will be on July 13th
7] Buxton Carnival will be on Saturday July 12th. [This Blog was corrected on September 29th - the Carnival date originally posted was wrong. Please check your diaries].
As more news arrives we'll post it here!
