Catching the Worm

Attention all potential Fringe entrants! A little bird tells us that the earlybird discounted, end of February deadline is only a month away now. At the time of writing we have a grand total of 20 entries but that number is likely to go up substantially over the next few months until the final deadline of April 19. 

As in previous years we are offering a tasty reduction on the entry fee - so it is just £50 if you enter before the end of February. If you wait till April it is £85! But there is another sometimes overlooked incentive - everything is listed on the website and Fringe App as soon as it comes in so that’s oodles of free advance publicity that could really help you stand out and attract an audience!

Remember anyone can enter the Fringe and Buxton Fringe has a reputation for its friendliness and supportive environment. We also have three managed venues, Underground Venues, The Rotunda and The Green Man Gallery offering technical, front of house, ticketing and other support.

To get going why not check out the free advice on our website’s Take Part pages including a handy section called How To Grow Your Audience? By entering now, you will have more choice when it comes to choosing a venue and the best time slot to suit your needs.

And if you are reading this and thinking it’s not quite you - can you help us spread the word to others? Our audience survey respondents last year told us they would love to see more drama, music and dance at the Fringe. We’d also like to see more entries in some of the smaller categories such as Film, Children’s Events and Street Theatre. Visual Arts is also an increasingly significant Fringe category.

We are very excited about all the shows and events that have entered so far and will soon be distributing a flyer to remind everyone what a fantastic festival we are going to have this July. See our What’s On pages for a sneak preview of Fringe 2020 and a welcome taste of summer!
