Thanks to everyone who helped make such a success of our first joint Buxton Festival Fringe and Buxton International Festival carnival float - particularly Lomas Distribution and driver Dominic.
We were delighted to win first prize in our category with our Carnival of the Animals themed float. Workshops carried out by Babbling Vagabonds in schools meant that the spectacular float was adorned with animal puppets and a giant, movable lion's head and huge animal sculptures were paraded in front of the vehicle.
Fringe performers added to the fun as did members of the Fringe and Festival behind-the-scenes crews. Even the sun shone!
In the coming weeks we will be updating our Fringe website gallery pages so look out for some great pics. Thanks to Fringe40 photographer Ian Parkes for helping with this!
Looking forward now to the Award ceremony at The Green Man Gallery this Sunday from 1.30pm. Do join us and raise a glass to Fringe40 and all its performers!
